Unfortunately, at the age of 15, I had a Serious accident in the Sport which left me Paralysed from the waist down (T10 Paraplegic), I was in Hospital for 7 months, after my injury I was determined not to give up and to carry on living a normal life, I left the hospital to live with my Father, however this wasn’t for long, I went onto meeting my current partner Laura just before Christmas in 2011 who now is my wife. I left home to live with her Parents, however this was only going to be a temporary thing up until me & Laura found a suitable bungalow, we moved into our current home in March of 2012. We then both went to college, with myself studying motorcycle mechanics, I now have a level 2 Qualification in Mechanics.
