Dyscover

Dyscover is a charity providing long-term support and opportunities to people with aphasia and their families. People with aphasia have difficulty reading, writing and understanding what is being said. This disability is caused by a stroke, head injury or other illness.

Charity Registration No. 1099432

Story

In 2009 at the age of 46 with no prior warning, I suffered a stroke that left me with no feeling at all down the right side of my body and the inability to speak.

Having always been healthy and active, being unable to work, drive or even hold a conversation (all the things that I had always taken for granted), has not been easy. Without the support of my family and the staff and volunteers at Dyscover things could be very different.

I am taking part in the London to Brighton bike ride on 18th June 2017 in order to raise funds for Dyscover so that they can continue to help and support others like myself.
