I am both thrilled and proud to have become a Patron of The Eden Dora Trust for Children with Encephalitis. Before talking with Petrina and Phil, I had never heard of Encephalitis. It is one of those illnesses that hardly anyone knows anything about.
I have since come to understand just how vital this charity is, and when they asked me to support The Eden Dora Trust, I did so without a second thought.
I think that it is really important that people appreciate more about what it is like to have suffered from Encephalitis and the resulting acquired brain injury (ABI), so I am delighted at being able to do my bit and help in any – and every – way that I can.
