Story

On 18 June 2016, I had a massive stroke… the paramedics were worried that I wouldn’t make it the hospital! I was 40 years of age. Nice birthday present!

The hospital give my wife a 10% chance that I would survive for operation, but I liked the odds...

Eventually, after a Mechanical Thrombectomy, they thought that I would only be in hospital for 3 to 4 months! But I was fortunate,  I just out after 2.5 weeks. Praise be!

Okay, so I still have nerve damage on my right side, and a thing called aphasia to work with, but life is a challenge! Still, I can walk and that have helped me to recover

At the start, and some consultants still stay, that I can’t handle proper challenges, so... a proper challenge will have to happen, and the Camino de Santiago is a good start!

A friend of mine, Dave, did the Camino on my behalf while I was in hospital, and sent me videos. It inspired me that one day, I could do the Camino,  now it’s my chance to do it for the people who have stroke and lost their voice. And you guys can help!
