Middlesbrough Supporters Forum is launching a Go Fund Me page for all Boro fans to help Gary Parkinson. His son Luke has written a blog chronicling their urgent need for support to continue weekly services that help give Gary quality of life. Can we help out?

So many of us were brought up on the Bruce Rioch team that triumphed against all the odds to take Boro from liquidation to top flight. Gary Parkinson was a big part of that side, only a teenager he stepped up and made the right back spot his own.

After sadly suffering a stroke in 2010 Gary has had Locked In Syndrome. This means that his active mind is trapped within a paralysed body. He needs the round the clock care, something professional carers and his family all provide. Yet, recently funds have been running low leading to some of his weekly treatments outside NHS funding having to be curtailed. They are treatments and therapies that have a marked impact on Gary's quality of life.

Luke recently published a powerful blog about his dad's condition and their need for more cash to help Gary's weekly support. He detailed a couple of the sessions that are now under threat.

“Physio sessions are a few hundred pounds a pop and my dad needs them weekly, at least. Swimming sessions are the same, something we can’t afford to cover at the minute, despite us desperately wanting to.”

You can view Luke's blog in full here it is well worth the read.

So, you can see that every pound donated can go a long way. We are appealing to all Boro fans to support "one of our own" Gary Gary Gary Gary Parkinson by please giving a little donation. Truly every little bit helps.
