Short Summary

My Name is Daniel Bush i am a 27 Year old male living in sydney 

On Sunday The 14th April 2013 My Self and another man of the nam Sean were climbing a famous Multi Pitch climb in the blue mountains called Sweet Dreams it is a easy climb with choice of an easy or hard finish. I Have climbed this climb 3 times before and know the route very well Sean has also climbed the route before with myself. This time we decide to do the harder finish. Sean went first and then belayed me up afterwards so i was on a top rope so if i fell i shouldn't have fallen far no more than 1 metre. Feeling a bit more confident being on a top rope and not leading i made a bigger move than i normally would have and missed...

But the rope didn't go tight i thought thats it. Finally i stopped looked at my feet and screemed my left foot had snapped off and was dangling around on a bit of skin and the right was mangled beyond recognition.

I yelled to lower me down so i could connect to a bolt in the wall and get the idiot that just nearly killed me off the end of the rope. i called the police and sat on a ledge no bigger than 300mm still 300m up a cliff for 3 and a half hour till emergency rescue could get to me. They could not get the helicopter to me so had to abseil me down and carry me out from the cliff taking another 3 hours.

They operated the same night.

After 8 weeks in hospital and 5 weeks at home recovering i am now able to bear wieght on only my right foot. i still have an open wound on my left ankle and the bone in the ankle has died.

I have a CRONIC INFECTION in my left akle and need the money for the best chance i have at not amputation my leg below the knee.

So i am asking for this:

A) $1000 from 10 people

B) $100 from 100 people

C) $10 from 1000 people 

D) $5 from 2000 People 

E) $1 from 10000 people

If you can't make a donation could you do me one favour?

Please share this on Facebook and your friends

Yours Sincerely

Daniel Bush
