Campaign: To emphasise the importance of being positive, whatever life throws at you

I had a serious stroke when I was 16. It left me with locked-in syndrome. This means that while my brain and mind work perfectly well, I am completely paralysed.

 

I need round-the-clock care and cannot speak. I communicate with a computer-based voice synthesiser.

 

But ever since my stroke, I have been determined that, one day, I will be able to walk and talk again.

 

I have tried very hard to have an optimistic attitude throughout this experience.

 

So, with Fixers, I want to get a message out to everybody:  Keep positive and you can overcome absolutely anything!

The following Fixers helped me with this Fix:

Joe Lywood 

Dr Hilary Gunn from Plymouth University supported me with this Fix.
