My story

[p]In the first week of January 2019 I was admitted to hospital with a bad ear infection. Doctors hoped they could clear up the infection with a round of strong intravenous antibiotics. Three weeks and several near-death experiences later, an MRI scan showed that the infection had spread to my brain, so I was rushed to Addenbrookes hospital in Cambridge for emergency brain surgery. Whilst I have no doubt that the fantastic team at Addenbrookes saved my life, NHS treatment only goes so far and I am now left with the lasting effects of damage to both my brain and my ear. [/p][p]In July 2019, after an evening of browsing the internet for support for brain injury sufferers, I stumbled across the Headway Oxfordshire website. Since then, I have been supported by the incredible Headway team and, slowly but surely they are helping me get back to my pre-injury self. They've supported me so much, so I decided that they deserved a little support in return. [/p][p]On the 3rd October 2021 I will run 26.2 miles along the streets of London to raise money for Headway Oxfordshire.[/p][p]Headway provide a huge variety of support services to those affected by brain injury (including stroke and some other neurological conditions) across the county of Oxfordshire. Services range from vocational support in getting back to 'normal' through to speech and language therapy for those who suffer from speech difficulties.[/p][p]Having experienced the benefits of headway first-hand, I think any donation is incredibly well deserved. I hope you will agree with me and donate whatever you can.[/p][p]If you want to keep up to date with my training, then please follow my blog [url=]26 Miles from Brain Injury.[/url][/p][p]Thank you [/p]
