My name is Dan, I'm 24 and this is being written on behalf of my sisters Mollie and Isabelle.
When I was 3 days old I suffered from neonatal meningitis, this caused hydrocephalus and cerebalpaulsy. I had to have a VNS pacemaker inserted and a shunt to manage my hydrocephalus. I also have severe epilepsy.
When i was 6 years old i was left unattended in a wheelchair and suffered a severe cervical spinal injury and a broken neck. I was in a halo for 9 months but this entire time i still smiled. My sisters and other carers have taken care of me since I was very young. Although i have episodic severe agitation, I am a very happy man. I spend lots of time outside in my wheelchair, I go swimming and love sensory items such as disco lights.
My sisters are currently trying to raise awareness for me as I cannot speak for myself but I want people to know how special and amazing I am. I've attatched some photos so you can see a bit of my life.
