Craig had contracted a flesh eating disease called Necrotizing Fasciitis.
This disease spreads like wildfire through your living tissue.
Craig was in a coma and had approximately 11 surgeries in a matter of two weeks.
He was operated on daily chasing the disease, cutting away the diseased flesh.
The surgeons told me he was dying.
Against all odds Craig beat the disease but has lost his left arm and half his torso. They have taken skin grafts from his thighs to cover the wound. Craig has to wear a burns suit for two years and because of the size of the wound he also needs to wear a large pad to protect his ribs.
He has just turned 48.
Craig is a fighter and refuses to let this beat him.
Because he works he is not eligible for any kind of funding.
If Craig gave up and sat at home he would get all the funding in the world.
So far he has had to convert his car and pay to get his licence back. He has had to have all new specially adapted clothing and things to help him adapt to life with one arm and medications are expensive.
Craig came out of hospital and went straight back to work , but has more surgeries to come in April.
My aim is to get Craig back to the thing he loves the most and that is riding his beloved Indian motorbike.
Craigs bike will need to be converted into a Trike to allow him to ride with one arm.
We need to get his spark back.
Every little bit counts .
