My stroke recovery blog out every Sunday at 10am.
I survived a devastating brainstem stroke diagnosed with locked in syndrome at the age of 39. I went on to make a remarkable recovery, against all the odds.
I give practical advice to aid stroke recovery.
I know all strokes are different and I give absolutely no promises, just possibilities.
‘So imagine being buried alive, where you can think and feel normally,
but you can move absolutely nothing?
A state where you can hear and see everything going on around, but you are unable to communicate that you can understand anything to anyone?
Against all medical opinion, I fully recovered after PROVING EVERYONE WRONG!
But then, I went on to inspire changes in the lives of countless others, globally with locked in syndrome with my own Fighting Strokes charity
My speaker showreel is here:
I founded and campaign with Fighting Strokes and have written 3 books in 3 years! I’m an internationally published author – ‘Running Free‘.
I self-published ‘Gonna Fly Now!’ (2012) & ‘I Am Still The Same’ 2014 (Amazon). I have featured across a range of UK and global media from America to India to Australia and South Africa.
I am wholly voluntary and I dedicate my life to helping improve the lives of people affected by brainstem stroke, locked on syndrome, stroke & stroke recovery.
