Laura's Fundraiser:

Get Laura back to University - PLEASE!

Laura's Photo




Hello! I'm Laura, I'm 22 years old and I'm a student mental health nurse, that had to take a year out of university due to health issues (Neurological & Mental Health), and well, life! My grandmother was diagnosed with vascular dementia, leading my mother, father and myself having to care for her 24/7. My mum and dad were unable to work, and as I was off university ill and undergoing a lot of tests, I was unable to work! However, I did volunteer for an organisation, I travelled far to share my story about my experiences with suffering from depression and anxiety. I travelled to educate people, and to help eliminate the stigma and discrimination that automatically comes alongside being mentally ill. I still needed to help people, even though I wasn't in university! I have no been given the go ahead to start back at university, the only thing that is stopping me is financial aspects. I'm broke, I'm in debt as I wasn't able to pay my bills on my year off, and my mum and dad aren't in the position at all to be able to help me with these funds. I've honestly exhausted all of my options, this is the last thing that I could think of, I feel absolutely awful for doing it, but I just don't know what else to do! I need to carry on with my dream! I need to do the only thing I know that I'm good at! I know I can help those who are mentally ill, as I have been there myself, at times, I'm still there. Helping others is the only thing that I know I am good at, especially when it comes to those who are stuck in the dark place, under the black cloud that is depression. I NEED to get back to university. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this!xxx
