Story

Major Hall suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) on Saturday 1 September 2018 and since then, he has been an in-patient at The Royal London Hospital, Whitechapel. Major Hall's consultant has confirmed that he is medically stable and ready for neuro-rehabilitation and that the first 6 months following a TBI are the most critical in recovering maximum capability. After the initial 6 months, recovery will plateau.

Sadly, there are very few NHS neuro-rehabilitation units in the UK which means, beds are few and far between and Major Hall is 'stuck' in an acute/trauma hospital rather than being in the correct facility for his recovery. Therefore, I am trying to raise a substantial amount of money in order to pay for a three week intensive package of rehabilitation treatment at a private London hospital which has been recommended to us.

Major Hall has dedicated his life to public service and voluntary works. He joined the RAMC as a boy soldier at 16 and continued to work for the military as a regular and TA soldier and as a civilian at HQ London District supporting the sick and injured soldiers within the M25 orbital. When Major Hall left the regular army, he worked for the NHS managing a blood bank. On leaving the NHS, Major Hall continued to work for public bodies such as The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Association and The Foreign and Commonwealth Office, retiring last year (2017) at the age of 75!

Despite approaching a number of military organisations for assistance, Major Hall has been declined support as rehabilitation appears to be an area of help not available to veteran or serving military personnel. Therefore, this is a desperate attempt to fund Major Hall's medical treatment.

    The St John and St Elizabeth Hospital (http://www.hje.org.uk/) was highly recommended to us by a friend who is a Consultant Neurologist; this is one of the hospitals we have approached for rehabilitation.

Chris and I have been together for 16 years and I am devastated that my 'Schokoladensoldaten' has suffered this traumatic injury to his brain. We love life to the maximum which is why I am trying to raise the funds to help Chris get the rehabilitation he so desperately needs.
