A friend from school suffered a massive stroke on Easter Monday 2017. Some of you may know him. His name is Graeme Cadas who will be 49 this year and is an ex St Aidan’s lad. Doctors said the stroke was due to clash of heads 2 days prior playing for his beloved football team TECH. Graeme recalls waking up on the morning, making a cuppa and going back to bed and the next thing he remembers was his son Jack standing over him. Jack rang 999 and undoubtedly saved Graeme’s life.
He was diagnosed as having a Haemorrhagic Stroke, and should have lost is speech as most do with this type of stroke. It has affected the left half of the brain, which in turn leaves a right sided weakness and as a result he walks slowly and has no dorsiflexion in his right ankle so can’t raise his foot or lift his arm above his chest or pick anything up and has been told this won’t get any better. He has spent 2 months in hospital learning to walk and use his arm.
Anyone who knows Graeme will recall he was a picture of heath regularly playing football and going to the gym. Fittingly he now manages his beloved TECH, the team he played for on that fateful day. Prior to his stroke he raised almost £5,000 for the Denise Taylor cancer trust and Bradley Lowery by running up Ben Nevis twice in 2 days , and doing the great Manchester road race.
The goal is to raise £4,000 to buy a trike for Graeme which is hand built and left handed. This will enable him to get out and exercise regularly once again and not only continue his charity work but put a smile back on his face doing what he loves best.
Any donations would be gratefully appreciated for this genuine and worthy cause.

Just wanted to update you all on progress. Thanks to your amazing effort we have now raised £1890 in less than 3 days reaching 47% of our target. Still a long way to go but we are confident. Keep sharing and spreading the word. From Mario & Neil (old St Aidan's RC school friends of GC). If anyone has any ideas and wants to contact myself or Neil we can reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com Neil has contacted St Aidan's and we are hoping they will get involved. TECH have suggested a race night which is in hand.
