The Beyond Recovery Project: Inspiring and Empowering Brain Tumour Survivors.

On 1st October 2019, I stood on the summit of Jebel Toubkal, the highest mountain in North Africa. My journey didn't begin there though; it started 506 days earlier, as I lay in a bed on a neuro high dependency unit, unable to walk and struggling to adapt to my new normal.

Almost a year and a half later, a good friend gave me the opportunity to trek to Toubkal, at a time when I was really struggling. Psychologically I was not in a good place.

When I finally reached the summit, I felt totally overwhelmed and empowered. This experience gave me the strength to move forward in life and set myself even bigger challenges. Now I want to help others to do the same. To move forward beyond recovery.

In June 2024, The Beyond Recovery Project aims to take a group of brain tumour survivors, who have been on the same journey as me, back to the Atlas mountains so that they too can experience what it's like to overcome the mental and physical challenges that life has thrown our way.

The Beyond Recovery Project also aims to provide a range of outdoor experiences, tailored to the needs of the indivdual.

In addition to this, we hope to one day be able to provide assistance to brain tumour survivors who are unable to access the equipment and therapies that they need through the NHS, for example, vestibular rehab therapy, treatment for facial palsy, wireless CROS hearing aids and other devices and even counselling.

By supporting this deeply personal project, you will be making a massive difference to many whose lives have been turned upside down.

Thank you so much for your support.
