We Are The Winter People

Post by beatroute66 » Wed Sep 22, 2021 7:44 am

Darlo fans are helping poet Jenny Rowbory raise funds for critical surgery only available in the US.

During her first year at university in 2004, she became ill with a virus that caused severe Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (inflammation of the brain and spinal cord), causing Jenny to become bed-bound and acutely ill ever since. In May 2015, after genetic testing, Jenny was also diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.

This neck instability became life-threatening and Jenny had to have an operation in January 2020 to try to fuse her neck in place to save her life, as well as a decompression surgery for Chiari Malformation. Unfortunately the fusion surgery was not a success and Jenny became a lot more disabled and it’s too dangerous for her to move her neck or head at all.

The only neurosurgeon in the world who specialises in fusion (and fusion revision) surgeries and invasive bolt traction testing to determine the correct fusion position for highly complex Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome patients, is in the USA.

YOURCLUB Content recently spoke with Jenny's father, Ian Rowbory, about his daughter's illness, the fundraising and his long-term love affair with the football club.

Thanks for putting this up, I've had a read through.

BUMP.
Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"

Thank you. It isn't an easy read, is it.
