Visit from Matt King OBE
Matt King was good enough to travel from Bedford to visit Rob and share his experiences. Matt suffered the same injury as Rob when he was 17 in 2004 and has gone on to live his life to the full, undertaking a law degree and now working for a law firm in London, completing the New York Marathon and being awarded an OBE for his charitable work. It was great to hear Rob and Matt chatting as if they had known each other for years.
A late lunch was followed by the first trip out of the spinal unit to the main hospital restaurant for hot chocolate and coffee – the start of the great escape. All in all what a great day.
