Connecting through technology

January 31, 2014

Knowledge, contacts and influence and being able to deliver consistently is key.

Well after finding someone their long lost relative from their last episode. It seems it wasnt enough for our Quartet of community champions. They  heard from Jackie whose daughter Natasha who has Huntingtons disease, which is often called HD, is an hereditary disorder of the central nervous system.

It used to be known as Huntington’s Chorea or HC. Huntington’s disease usually develops in adulthood and can cause a very wide range of symptoms.The disease affects both men and women. Natasha has a son who is currently in hospital in Bristol undergoing treatment. Natasha has been unable to get to the hospital so in stepped the merry quartet who arranged for a little treat that would have gone to landfill. Steve Whiteway from Devon Contract Waste, Sonya and Alex from Collectrical and Chaz Singh arranged for a computer, a webcam, computer desk, back support chair, keyboard and a mouse for Natasha so that she can now skype her son in the comfort of her own home.

Chaz said seeing the joy on Natasha’s face was priceless. Her smile immediately filled the room and as if a burden had been lifted by a group of people she had never met before. Mum Jackie said that she was thrilled and so happy to see that Natasha will now enjoy talking to her son in Bristol.Steve, Sonya, Alex and Chaz hope that Natasha enjoys the skype conversations with her son on the new computer. Lets see who will be in for a treat next?
