    Story

    This is Shannen's story.

    In October 2001 Shannen was involved in a Road Traffic Accident which left her with a brain trauma and critically ill.

    Shannen was moved to Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham where she remained in a coma for 2 weeks, they continued to monitor the swelling in her brain but as she was non responsive the doctors advised that her chances were not good.

    Shannen was moved to Boston's Pilgrim hospital in Jan 2002 where she stayed until being discharged at the end of that month still being fed by a tube. Shannen started physiotherapy in 2002 once a week but she found this hard to tolerate.

    In December 2005 Shannen was lucky to get a place in the Ranken Jordan Rehabilitation Centre in St Louis, Missouri for 3 months. The Centre was able to gain more mobility in her left arm and tried to help her walking with a frame but her balance was very poor. After 3 months Shannen's speech had improved and Shannen was able to manoeuvre her wheelchair using both arms.

    Since January 2016 Shannen has been attending Browny's Boxing gym in Grantham twice a weeks for 121 sessions with Russ Brown the founder. Shannen's mobility has improved massively which has led to her to being able to walk with support and massively improving her balance and core stability.

    On 27th November Shannen is going to attempt to walk 5km (3.1 miles) from the gym, along Belton Lane and back through Alma Park with just her walker to raise funds to help expand the gym to include a rehabilitation centre and equipment to help other people with disabilities like herself. This is a huge ask from Shannen and for most of us would be like running a marathon, but with everyone's support and cheers along the way I am sure she will complete this task.

    Russ not only help's Shannen but also help's many other young adults and children with disabilities and behaviour issues this expansion will help so many that are unable to attend a mainstream gym.
