I had never heard of Encephalitis or acquired brain injury until I met Eden.
I was stunned to hear Eden’s story when Phil first told me and had never heard of the illness.
I was so honoured to be invited to become a Patron of this wonderful charity.
I am both thrilled and proud to have become a Patron of The Eden Dora Trust
I consider it a great privilege to be a Patron of The Eden Dora Trust.
