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.
