"A year ago today I was, I am told, ...within half an hour of dying. At best they thought I would have serious brain damage.
But I am here! And next week I am going to run 5k to raise money for Headway, the charity which supports people with acquired brain injury and their families. I am lucky. My brain damage is small.
When I left hospital, I had limited use of my limbs. I couldn't read. I couldn't tell the time. I couldn't do lots of things that we take for granted. I am lucky. So much has come back, thanks to medication and hard work.
If you haven't already, please make this birthday special for me and my amazing family by sponsoring me in my run. Thank you. "
This is a shameless "bump" as Frances's run is now just a week away - the quote is from her Facebook Timeline today.
Her sponsorship for Headway has almost reached £1,200 so far - there's still time for more!
Thanks for reading this.
