Tanya Elston 23rd May 2020 will mark 1 year since my sister’s horse riding accident. She was air lifted by the DSAA to Southampton Hospital, where she was put on a ventilator and spent 5 weeks in a coma. Almost 1 year later, Hayley remains in hospital making slow, but steady progress from a traumatic brain injury and spinal injuries. And 1 year on, the DSAA patient liaison nurse, Jo is STILL supporting our family. How can I ever thank them? I can’t. Words will never be enough. But I can raise awareness and show my appreciation. So, I’ve accepted the coast to coast virtual challenge and I plan to complete 55 miles of walking and cycling in May. My aim is to raise as much awareness for DSAA as possible, but if I can raise a few pennies along the way, I will be delighted 😀 Thank you x Tanya Elston
