BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY / Personal Memoirs

'Just amazing and inspirational' Jeremy Vine

Can you imagine being trapped inside your own body? Able to see and hear everything going on around you but unable to move or speak - the blink of an eye your only way of communicating.

Fell-runner and fun-loving mother-of-three Kate Allatt's life was torn apart when what appeared to be a stress-related headache exploded into a massive brainstem stroke leading to locked-in syndrome. Totally paralysed, she became a prisoner inside her own body. Doctors warned her family she would never walk, talk or swallow or lead a normal life again.

But they didn't know Kate. The words no and never were not in her vocabulary.

With the help of her best friends and family she drew on every ounce of her runner's stamina and determination to make a recovery that amazed medical experts. Using a letter chart, Kate blinked the words "I will walk again". Soon she was moving her thumb and communicating with the world via Facebook. Eight months after her stroke, Kate said goodbye to nurses, walked out of hospital and returned home to learn how to run again.

This is the story of her incredible journey.

Kate Allatt suffered a huge brainstem stroke with locked in syndrome at the age of 39. Following her remarkable fight back to a normal life, she is now an internationally published author and inspirational speaker.
