Story

Thank you for visiting my page. I'm Alison and I am going to be taking part in the Great Birmingham Run (Half Marathon) on October 14th to crowdfund for Sonia Smith. I'm hoping to raise funds for her to purchase equipment to help her day to day life after a devastating stroke. This is her story.

My name is Sonia Smith, I'm married with 2 wonderful boys but 7 years ago (when I was only 33 years old) I had a stroke, this changed mine and my families' life forever. I was told I had a brain-stem stroke which is one of the severe ones, and my husband was told 'to be prepared for the worst' but after 6 months of being in hospital I am lucky to be a survivor ( I know there are many people who don't make it). I am left with many abnormalties, I have speech problems, I can no longer walk, swallowing issues, facial disfigurement, hearing loss, eyesight issues, spacial awareness, I'm constantly dizzy, tremors, unfortunately my list could go on. Its been a struggle the past few years my operations and procedures I have had, and without my close friends and family I don't know where I'd be today. It's very hard to be severely disabled everyday but please, please help me to raise towards a hearing aid which will greatly help me everyday, now it's come to the time, we need help, please, please donate to me whatever you can, every bit helps. Thank you for taking your time to read this, you can always email me at soniasmith275@talktalk.net
