The UK is a nation of animal lovers, and we often hear stories of how pets have helped people through the hard times after brain injury. We'd love to hear your stories of how pets have helped you, for an upcoming feature in our Headway News magazine.
Are they the listening ear who never complains? Has their companionship helped with your recovery? Or has their presence caused difficulties you never experienced before your ABI?
Tell us in the comments below - we're looking for stories about all types of pets, from dogs and cats to smaller (or larger!) animals.
Thank you as always for your support.
