On the 8th of December 2017 I had a stroke at age 17. I'm recovering well and despite initially being paralysed in my right limbs I have regained all of my movement back. Now, I begin the slow process of building strength and allowing the brain to recover.
Throughout this time the support that I have received has been fantastic, so thank you to everyone who has been a part of that!
I have also received amazing help, support and understanding from a charity that knows exactly what I'm going through. PAUL for Brain Recovery is a local charity helping local people. They help with anything and everything that somebody experiencing a brain injury would need.
As well as supporting and empowering those affected by brain injuries and their families, the charity also aims to raise awareness and promote understanding of brain injury. They provide many services such as support sessions, socialising sessions and are able to bring in specialists in order to aid a person's recovery.
To help them continue to be able to provide that support it is vital that they receive donations through fundraising such as this. Here are just some examples of how your donations could help:
£50 provides family support sessions for those who have a loved one suffering from a brain injury.
£100 enables PAUL to run social outings for up to 20 of its visitors.
£200 enables PAUL to fund a package of specialist, professional support services such as time with aqua-physiotherapists, anger management, sports therapy, speech therapy and much more.
A percentage of the funds will also be going to Ward 100 at Hull Royal Infirmary. The care I was given on this ward was fantastic and one of the reasons I believe I've made such a good recovery so far.
Thank you to anyone who donates to or supports this cause.
