Whilst making my way long a pavement in the big city I was struck by a car that had mounted the curb, the driver had lost control of the vehicle. They changed my life forever. I had a severe head injury, which caused paralysis of my left side and some loss of sight in my left eye. I spent almost 10 month in hospital quite a distance from where I lived and this had a massive impact on my family.
I was eventually transferred to The Royal Hallamshire hospital in Sheffield and from there to the Oakwood Centre for Rehabilitation in Rotherham, I began the long and difficult journey to the rest of my life.
