    David is my twin, my best friend and the other half of me. For 39 years he has been my confidant, my rock and the calm to my storm. On Friday I had to make an unimaginable journey with him by ambulance to Salford Royal Hospital, sirens blearing and blue lights flashing. With tears rolling down my face I sat with him whilst he lay on the stretcher, my kind, selfless, one in a million twin brother.

    We received the devastating news yesterday that David has suffered a stroke. David is 39 years young, has 2 beautiful children, he is a son, a brother, an uncle and a friend to many. His whole world has suddenly crashed down around him and I need your help.

    David‘s stroke was caused by a tear in an artery at the back if his neck. Upon healing a clot has formed and travelled up to his brain causing the stroke. He has vision problems, slurred speech and cannot swallow or walk unaided.

    As a family we want to take as much pressure off David as possible, as he has a long road of rehabilitation ahead. We want him to purely concentrate on getting better, without any external worries about work or finances. As many of you know, David has worked all his life and is a hard, conscientious worker. We would like to raise some money to support David financially over the coming months, to take this burden away from him.

    I have no shame in saying that yes, I am begging you for any donations no matter how small, pennies make pounds. If a donation isn‘t possible, then please send your thoughts and strength to our David, our Swanny.

    Thank you,

      Thank you so much for all your kind donations, it means SO much! David is improving really well, but still has a long road of rehabilitation ahead. He currently has double vision/auras in both eyes and has been given an eye patch to help. His swallow isn’t functioning normally so he is on thickened liquids and fork mash diet. A scan has shown that one of his vocal chords is paralysed. Physio have had him on his feet today, but due to brain/muscle coordination and vision/balance issues he has trouble walking at the moment. But he is determined!
