Adam’s journey is one of true inspiration. In 2006 he underwent brain surgery to treat his epilepsy, but suffered complications and was admitted into Rakehead Rehabilitation Centre. Adam states that part of his rehabilitation was helping the other patients recover. After being discharged, Adam went on to volunteer at the Trust. Volunteering provided Adam with a glimpse of what working for ELHT would be like.  Adam volunteered in a variety of roles, but it was whilst volunteering in Radiology that he decided upon his career path. After 3 years study, Adam’s journey brought him back to ELHT, as a diagnostic radiographer, supporting all areas of the trust, including NICU, performing crucial x-rays in order to aid the diagnosis and treatment of newborn babies. Adam who describes himself as an ‘ultra-runner’ is combining his love of running with his desire to help patients, to raise funds for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Burnley General Teaching Hospital.

Denise Gee, Fundraising Manager for ELHT&Me said “We’d like to say massive thank you to Adam for taken on this extreme challenge in aid of ELHT&Me and helping us raise vital funds to improve patient experience”

Please help us raise as much as possible and show your support!!
