Fi's Fund was set-up to help make Fiona's dream of learning to walk again become a reality.

The money raised is being used to send Fiona to a specialist rehabilitation centre where she will receive up to six hours of therapy a day. Such intense and holistic therapy is not available through the NHS and will cost up to £20,000.

Life has thrown more than a few challenges at Fiona.

She was born with a rare genetic condition which makes her joints dislocate easily. After being hit by a car in 1992, her condition worsened and she has had to use a wheelchair ever since. But she doesn't just rise to a challenge, she does it with unique determination and a smile on her face.


Site Updates     Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome

August '07

New page called Rehab updates created for video footage.

Updates to front page and the fundraising page.


Fiona has Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder of connective tissue which is very painful and debilitating. The collagen which makes up the connective tissue is weak, resulting in loss of strength of the skin, bones, joints and blood vessels.

Symptoms depend on the type of EDS and it can be a life threatening condition.
