Mark was on a client call when his daughter’s mother kept calling. And calling. And calling. It was unusual so he cut his work call short and called her back, only to discover that his 10 year old daughter, Mina, was in an ambulance on the way to hospital. 

Mina had suffered a brain haemorrhage and had lost one third of the functioning of her right brain hemisphere. Her left side had lost feeling and mobility.

This was the beginning of a 2.5 year battle to help Mina regain her independence, while also questioning the medical establishment’s normal procedures around rehabilitation.

Mark shares how he got through it, as well as the emotional fall-out that occurs when the crisis is over.
