Aileen’s letter ‘a gift’

Anyone who has met Mobility Centre (previously Life Unlimited) Store manager M-J Bloem will know she’s seldom lost for words.

But when regular customer Aileen Mudford stopped by the Gisborne Mobility Centre Store and handed M-J a letter, she was left speechless.

Aileen, 71, who has terminal cancer, was determined M-J knew about the difference she has made in her life since she started visiting the store last year.

Back then, Aileen explained in her letter, she was “in so much distress” as she struggled with continence following a serious back injury and the diagnosis that her bowel cancer, which had been in remission, had metastasised into her liver and other parts of her body.

Someone recommended Aileen try the Mobility Centre Store.

“I walked into our most beautifully laid-out shop and I was feeling rather nervous.”

There she found “a most cheerful and lovely lady behind her desk”.

“She was most understanding, and I soon became very relaxed. She certainly went that extra mile to get the continence products to my home if I was unable to make the trip,” Aileen said.

“The products (Advance) I receive are just so perfect for my everyday life and as always it is a pleasure to visit Mobility Centre Gisborne.

“Your worries are all over once you go into that shop.”
