Dawn – before she fell ill…

And Dawn’s story in Bella magazine

At the beginning of the year I sold Dawn’s emotional real life story to the Daily Mail newspaper and later Bella magazine. Dawn, who suffered a devastating stroke after the birth of her son, has locked in syndrome and is unable to move. But her mind is the same as ever and she communicates by blinking and making tiny hand movements.
Sadly shortly after her stroke, her marriage also broke up. But against all the odds, Dawn is still a wonderful mum to her son.
I helped Dawn tell her story in the newspaper and the magazine – and incredibly I am delighted to announce she has since completed her book, about her experience, Slowly Making Ripples. It is available from website Lulu.com
