    Story

    Rhys loved cycling and he enjoyed nothing more than going out on his bike. He’d think nothing of doing a 100 mile cycle ride and enjoyed riding on the weekend with his friends.  

    But, on the 15th July 2015 everything changed. Rhys sustained a life changing traumatic brain injury whilst cycling. He was rushed to the University Hospital in Cardiff where he underwent brain surgery to save his life. Rhys then spent several weeks in a coma and was looked after by staff in the intensive care and the high dependency units. Because the effects of Rhys’ brain injury were life changing, he was then transferred to Neath Port Talbot neuro-rehabilitation unit (NRU) for rehabilitation.  He spent a further 18 months in NRU  before coming home to his family in January 2018.

    Rhys requires support both day and night - he can’t talk, he can’t walk and often experiences pain. Our goal for Rhys is for him to have best quality of life possible. We are hoping to fundraise £8300 for a Thera-Trainer Balo which is a therapy device to help Rhys exercise, balance and improve his mobility safely on a specially designed standing frame that has an electric lift.
