Lucy Martin suffered a stroke during surgery to remove a brain tumour in 2011 and credits Headway’s Cork brain injury rehabilitation centre with aiding her recovery.

Lucy, who hails from Ballygarvan, spent 22 days in an induced coma. She learned to walk and look after herself again at the National Rehabilitation Hospital, Dun Laoghaire. However, she says it was at Cork brain injury and support centre, Headway, that she learned to cope with the crippling PTSD she developed after her life-changing ordeal. The rehabilitation service says they have reached a critical point and have launched a fundraising campaign for a new €2 million state-of-the-art brain injury rehabilitation centre on the Carrigrohane Road.

Speaking to RedFM News, Lucy Martin says Headway makes a huge difference to the lives of hundreds of people in Cork every year. Listen to her interview here.
