About @KateAllatt

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.

Patient visits, research, steering committees, books, apps, speeches
