Diebeatis does not help her aswell plus she has leukaemia , caterax but now she cant walk 5 or 6 steps and totally out of breath. This is happening all day now. Im in desperate need of electic wheelchair.

 I cant even get to doctors most of the time as she 83 an done very well for her self considering she has had no help at all this need a  chair so badly  cant even get her out with ojt a wheelchair. We spend fourtens on cab back an forth to hospital. Iv jjst done application for disability to find out she to old to claim it. I needed to get a wheel chair funded.
