Ella's Story

Ella is 16 years old and suffers from CRPS which stands for Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. This debilitating condition has turned her life upside down as she lives with chronic pain in both legs and sometimes both arms which can affect her mobility hugely. Due to this condition Ella has been off mainstream school for nearly 2 years which has proven isolating for Ella and her family.

Ella's mum tells us that "being able to be involved in creative projects has helped Ella engage expressively with a medium that helps her get away from her physical and mental health difficulties. She has grown in confidence and is developing a sense of self-worth which is very vital in her life. Thank you to everyone supporting her".
