To whom it may concern,
My name is Mike Freedman. I am a husband, and a father of two girls under the age of 7. Through a series of events, I became disabled with nerve damage in my lower back and left leg. I am consequently left unable to walk a single step or stand. The intense pain I feel every minute of every day is only mildly kept down by a host of drugs, most of which are morphine based.
Due to my disability and its nature, I have been privileged to have been loaned a car under the Uk’s Motability scheme. Thanks to this my life and thus my family’s life, has been greatly improved. I am able to get to appointments, get hospital attention when I need it, see my friends, visit my family and basically – have a life.
As it is the end of the car’s lease, it has to go back. It is normal procedure, however, that towards the end of the lease you ensure that another Motability car lease is in place to enable continuity of service. We, however were told a few months ago by Motability that although they would allow me to have another car, they would not let my wife drive it due to Motability not willing to insure her. So far, despite our best efforts, we have been unable to reinstate my wife. My wife is my main carer and driver and we so desperately need her back with a car as life without this necessity is unthinkable.
We are looking for support from the community in the hope of getting Motability and their insurers RSA to revoke their decision. We are looking to get as many signatures / emails as possible. Every single offer of support is exactly what we urgently need as the car is due to go back this Friday (27/07).
Thanking you in advance,
