Last year I was diagnosed with lymphoma cancer, but whether it’s cancer or brain haemorrhages, all of us are in this together.
Eric Raymond is a former US Army Soldier who has suffered symptoms of traumatic brain injury and is traveling to the UK to run the London Landmarks Half Marathon all the way from Las Vegas.
George Martin is 18 years old and our youngest London Landmarks Half Marathon runner. "It is a great achievement for me to be able to take part in the LLHM. I feel privileged that I am able to run for a charitable cause while achieving a personal goal."
Francesca Zampieri is fundraising for SameYou by running the London Landmarks Half Marathon. "I’m not running for myself, I’m running for every person who feels alone, lost. Everyone who thinks life it’s not worth it anymore, everyone who is struggling, who has been through a lot and doesn’t know how to get out of the black hole."
I have never been through the life-changing experience of sustaining a brain injury before, but upon talking to survivors and seeing the statistics, I felt like a drastic change needed to take place to make people realise that anyone could become the victim of brain injury or stroke, regardless of age.
Whilst undergoing neurosurgery, 24 year old Abby Jarman set herself a goal to raise $200 for SameYou and to get people talking about brain injury. She has raised a total of $3,000 so far and is still going! We think Abby is an amazing young lady and a beacon of light for brain injury survivors and their loved ones and that is why she is our supporter of the month.
This month’s supporter of the month is going the extra mile. 479 miles to be exact!
Jack Tate is taking on an epic adventure. Jack is walking the massive distance from North Yorkshire to Cornwall, to raise awareness and funds for SameYou after his dad suffered a subarachnoid haemorrhage in 2018 which led to life-changing brain injuries.
Gaby suffered an ischemic stroke at the age of 25 which killed a large portion of her occipital lobe of the brain. One year on, she has decided to fundraise for SameYou by running 10k!
