“My son, Dylan, was an extremely well thought of Graphic Designer for a top national newspaper, and a caring father, until he sadly experienced a Brain haemorrhage in August 2012 which totally changed him.
His brain injury left him extremely vulnerable and isolated and he told me ‘I have never been so lonely in my life’; something a mother never wants to hear from her child.
Dylan began attending Headway Sussex twice a week and did well with their support. However, one of Dylan’s friends from headway Sussex passed away and after attending the funeral, Dylan could not cope emotionally returning to Headway Sussex. this is one of the symptoms of frontal lobe injury.
Sadly, Dylan used alcohol as his coping mechanism after his brain injury and unfortunately passed away in January 2022.”
Christine wants to ensure that there is more help readily available for other brain injury survivors, and pays tribute to her son, by fundraising for these resources.
Thank you so much Christine!
