Brain surgery survivor takes on pier to pier challenge
James Lane comments: “I was taken ill suddenly in September after a Haemorrhage was caused by a ruptured arteriovenous malformation (AMV) in my brain.
The neurology team at Southampton General Hospital looked after me round the clock for three weeks and operated successfully to save my life.
Their care was like that of a private hospital and everything was done to support my needs, both medically and emotionally.
I cannot thank them enough for what they have done for me.
The money we raise is going to Southampton Hospital Charity to support the D level Neurology Unit where I spent my time. The hope is to use the money to fund ear plugs and eye masks for patients coming out of brain surgery as noise and light sensitivity is very common especially during busy visiting times.
James and family successfully walked pier to pier from Bournemouth to Boscombe pier in September, and to date has raised an amazing £741 for the unit.
