My story

[p]Horses and riding has always been my absolute passion! Unfortunately, last year aged 22 I had a very serious accident whilst out riding and suffered a traumatic brain injury. I was taken to Royal Stoke hospital where I received the most incredible care and treatment which definitely saved my life. I spent about a month in critical care in an induced coma. Of course I don’t remember any of this, but I know I had the very best care from such amazing doctors and nurses. I then moved to a super ward called ARTU who were incredible and helped me in so many ways to get my life back. I had to re-learn how to walk and talk again, but they made this possible. Finally I finished my recovery at broadfield ward at the Haywood hospital who helped me to rebuild my life to where I am now. I was discharged from hospital in December, and against all the odds I am now back living a completely normal life. I am very happy to say I am also back doing what I love most, riding and being with the horses! This would not have been possible without the amazing care I received! In total, I spent 168 days in hospital, so just under 6 months. To say thankyou to the amazing critical care unit and ARTU (Acute Rehabilitation Trauma Unit) that cared for me at royal Stoke, I am going to be walking 168 miles over the next 6 months. I plan to do this with lots of different people who were involved in my journey and recovery. I have set my target to raise £1680, as this is £10 for every day I was in hospital. Any donations will be appreciated so much! Both of these wards at Royal Stoke are incredible but require lots of expensive complex equipment to care for patients. Donations will help provide this, to care for more patients like me. I will be forever thankful to the teams at Royal Stoke for what they did for me. This is may way of paying my thanks to these incredible teams and I hope many of you will be a part of it![/p][p][br][/p]
