Simon’s Story

Simon was referred to us here at the Eight Foundation by one of our Eight Wealth Management Consultants, Rob Heath

Simon is ex Army, in May 2020 Simon suffered a catastrophic accident leaving him paralysed from the shoulders down.​ He is currently at a centre for rehabilitation, where he is learning how to adapt to his new circumstances and enable him to hopefully return to work one day.​

When we first spoke to the family, we were blown away with Simon’s positivity and perseverance to continue working and providing for his family despite being paralysed.​
​To help Simon achieve his goals, The Eight Foundation purchased Simon an up to date laptop built with software to enable him to use speech recognition… honestly incredible!​

Ethan from Eight Wealth Management really took on this project and said it was a pleasure to go and meet Simon’s wife and chat to Simon via video chat… “it was extremely humbling!​”

Simon isn’t quite home yet but he continues to gain strength… I’m sure his positivity really does see him through.​
Once Simon is home and settled we will also be providing them with a week stay in a specially adapted luxury lodge.
