Marc’s Story

I came out of hospital about a year ago’. Marc tells us more about how his brain injury has impacted his speech and the adaptations that he makes to continue his passion for MC-ing. He may now need to slow down the tempo as timing can be more challenging, or write down the lyrics to aid his memory. Marc won an award for his MC abilities in 2012 and now has broadened his horizon to include hip-hop music. Click here to see the rest of Marc’s conversation with his Speech and Language Therapist.

Chuck’s Story

On January 28th 2018, I was turning into my driveway on a busy road. The gentleman behind me in a large truck wasn’t paying attention and hit me from behind going about 50mph. He broke my seat. My brain hit the front and back of my skull and I was unconscious for about a minute and a half. My neck was all floppy at the hospital. I can’t tell you what happened for the next couple of months – it’s foggy. I was really easy to anger, I was really sensitive to loud noises and bright stimuli. The person I was before was no longer present. I was waiting for the old me to come back. Click here to hear more from Chuck about his experience of Traumatic Brain Injury.

Chloe’s Story

I was 19 years old and had just started at university. I can’t remember what happened to me. I have been told by my family and friends that I was crossing the road at traffic lights when a bus rounded the corner and hit me. I was knocked unconscious straight away. At first they didn’t think I was going to survive, and I spent the next two and a half months in a coma. I had to relearn how to walk and talk, eat and swallow. When I was at home I started to have private therapy. I also started to do personal training three times a week. I still struggle with my memory and can’t remember anything from roughly three years before the accident. I genuinely want to live as ‘normal’ life as possible, although this might be a bit different for me because of my challenges.

Chris’ Story

I loved working as a tree surgeon before my accident as it was a very physical job. I was a bit nervous of heights at the start, but at the end of my career the “higher the better.” I wasn’t going to let my brain injury stop me playing golf. As early as I could I got a golf club back in my hands. It was because of Grandpapy and his passion that I have a love of golf…I will keep playing golf because of him.
