Her ‘second chance recovery story’ from a medically induced coma, following a near-fatal car crash, is nothing short of a miracle.

After having nearly every major bone in her body broken, and her organs pushed into her chest, there were grave doubts she’d ever walk again, however, within three months she was walking, without crutches, and a few weeks after that, running again. 

Just seven months, into her recovery, she returned to training, and less than two years after the crash was back into professional competition.

Her inspiring story makes tonight’s Gala attendance at the Lido Theatre a must, for anyone who doesn’t have to get up at two o’clock, tomorrow morning, to get ready to go to work.
