Walk the journey........SAH, aneurysm survivors walk back to hospital. Wish us well!!

Meet the Walk the Journey Team - Trevor had his aneurysm 3 years ago, Alice had hers 2 years ago and Linda had her aneurysm 18mths ago. We were all in our forties when we were rushed to hospital with SAH's. The journey back to health has been hard, with lots of different issues to deal with and the journey still continues. But we are here because of the NHS and Addenbrooke's hospital Cambridge. We dediced to get together and Walk the Journey orginally taken by ambulance from Great Yarmouth to Addenbrooke's. A journey of 110 miles. We are due to start on Friday 21st June and finish that journey 24th June. We have used walking as a way of improving our well being, using the times when we walk to talk about aneurysms and how we are dealing with things: walking has become our medicine.

We are lucky to have many other people helping us on a fundraising walk at various stages on our way to Addenbrooke's and we have to thank Headway for this forum. Alice and Linda meet each other through this site. Please send us your best wishes and thoughts to support us on our journey.
