“I hope my story gives others hope”

The victim of a brutal attack has spoken frankly about his experience of acquired brain injury. Father-of-two Paul Spence was attacked in a bar in Hull, and was initially unable to leave the house as a result of his injuries. But Mr Spence, 32, has worked hard on a recovery he says would have been impossible without the support of his family. He still struggles with memory loss, seizures and speech problems, but insists he is not to be treated as a victim. “Recovering from a brain injury is a slow process,” he told the Hull Daily Mail. “But you get can get better and I hope my story gives people hope.” Mr Spence is now in training for a half-marathon to fundraise for the unit at which he was treated.  Read the story in the Hull Daily Mail here.
