Chrissy's New Home

We've been very busy getting Chrissy's new bungalow ready for her.

She is on her way there now. Very excited!

Long-time readers of this blog will know what a fight we've had to get to this stage in her life. She spent over four years in an assessment & treatment unit, & now she's ready to face the world again.

Let's hope the world is ready for Chrissy!

Fingers crossed that she will fall in love with her lovely new bungalow on the outskirts of Winchester city centre. It's going to be a huge change from living on a locked ward. She will have two carers with her at all times, which will enable her to live as independently as she can.

Watch this space....

  1. Hi Jane, I was wondering how you and Chrissy were getting on. You're gone from my facebook and hardly on Twitter.

    I'm so pleased she's found a new home. It must be such a relief. I hope she's doing OK and the carers pull out all the stops to give Chrissy a good quality of life, God knows she deserves it. xx

  5. Hi Sam,
    It's great to hear that you are offering support to your sister. I have set up a Facebook group. If your sister wants to put in a request to join I will add her. https://www.facebook.com/groups/509708135744820/ There is lots of information on there. Also, has she joined Unique (the rare chromosome disorder support group)? They have a leaflet on 1q21.1 microdeletion. http://www.rarechromo.org/information/Chromosome%20%201/1q21.1%20Microdeletions%20FTNP.pdf Hope this helps.
    Jane x

    1. I've added her thanks Sam. Hope she finds it helpful. I think there are far more than 69 people with this disorder - more than that diagnosed now, & a huge amount that aren't I suspect.

  7. My name is Leah Brown, I'm a happy woman today? I told myself that any loan lender that could change my life and that of my family after having been scammed separately by these online loan lenders, I will refer to anyone who is looking for loan for them. It gave me and my family happiness, although at first I had a hard time trusting him because of my experiences with past loan lenders, I needed a loan of $300,000.00 to start my life everywhere as single mother with 2 children, I met this honest and God fearing online loan lender Gain Credit Loan who helped me with a $300,000.00 loan, working with a loan company Good reputation. If you are in need of a loan and you are 100% sure of paying the loan please contact (gaincreditloan1@gmail.com)
