Head Injury


Dartford - Kent - England

Aug. 22, 2011 - PRLog -- This is the real life account of a remarkable young man who suffered a near fatal head injury and describes his astounding battle to regain his life.
Rob Pownall was just eighteen when he had an unfortunate accident, which was to dramatically change his life. Following life saving surgery he lay in a coma for several days before waking up only to find himself completely paralysed and unable to speak.
The story is told by Rob’s father Chris R. Pownall, author of ‘Funny How Things Work Out’ and ‘Onwards and Upwards’.
This book is intended to be an inspiration to others who might find themselves in a similar situation, and need something to give them hope and encourage them to strive for the best possible recovery.
Rob received the finest medical care under the British NHS (National Health Service) and demonstrated great determination and courage; he worked hard everyday as part of his rehabilitation, maintained a positive mental attitude which greatly helped him through his long journey back from what first appeared to be a hopeless and impossible situation.

Chris says “This story is about our son Robert Pownall who at the age of eighteen, suffered a near fatal head injury. He was unfortunate in having an accident which caused an intracranial haemorrhage that required life saving surgery. The story describes Rob's remarkable determination and courage in fighting his way back from the darkness of a coma.”
