    Story

    In April 2020 Jaime Lunn suffered a significant and life changing spinal injury at C6 level. This means he no longer have sensation below his chest, it also means that he is paralysed, that his hands no longer have the ability to pick things up with opposable thumbs, that he no longer have bladder and bowel control. Jaime's body can't regulate its temperature which means he struggles with hands and arms that feel as cold as ice while the rest of me is hot. He has significantly reduced lung capacity and can struggle for hours to cough up the smallest amount of liquid that gets onto his chest. With this type of injury he is also at high risk from autonomic dysreflexia. It causes extreme hypertension and can lead to cerebral haemorrhage and death.

    Jaime spent seven months in hospital during one of the most challenging times for the NHS. Staffing levels were often critically low, many of the therapeutic and additional services were reduced or no longer available and he understands his rehabilitation was significantly below par. His children, Florence and Seth couldn't visit him for many many weeks and months and it took a lot of reassurance before they finally believed that daddy wasn't going to die. They had to grow up and take on so much more than he would have ever wanted them to at this age.

    Jaime's Journey is a support group set up by friends of Jaime and Caroline to help raise funds and also manage the various projects to adapt their house and purchase equipment. We need all the financial help we can get to enable us to help make Jaime and his family as normal a life as possible
