I was unfortunate enough to be involved in a horrific car accident July 2012. If it weren't for LIVES, I may not be here today, or at the very least, paralysed.
I was trapped inside the car for roughly 2 hours whilst the fire crew cut off the roof to enable the paramedics to remove me from the vehicle safely. I was unconscious for a period of time after the accident, however I can remember the LIVES team were with me in what seemed like an instant. They kept me calm and in a stable position, they stayed with me throughout the time the fire crew did what they needed to do; I was absolutely petrified, without them I would have gone into a state of panic. I had broken my neck (C7) and my pelvis had collapsed after breaking in 3 places. If I had moved...well its not worth thinking about.
Not only did they care for me; after I was airlifted to hospital they reassured my loved ones, who were stood on the road side watching what can only be described as a nightmare, that I was going to be ok.
I'm taking this opportunity to raise money for this life saving cause; its my way of giving back to the LIVES team as I am forever in their debt.
