In Dr Kate Allatt’s Own Words
“In early February, I was invited on BBC radio to talk about my daring charity climb up the Western Breach of Kilimanjaro, for my fortieth birthday, in June 2010. I was a super fit, fell runner, digital marketer, married, and devoted mother of three young children – Woody 5, Harvey 8 India 10 – but our lives were to change forever. Just four days after that bubbly radio interview, I suddenly suffered a catastrophic brain stem stroke. Kilimanjaro never happened.
I emerged from my medically induced coma and was considered vegetative. However, I could actually think, feel, see and hear normally but was just unable to move a single muscle. I felt ‘buried alive’, ‘trapped inside my body’ as I suffered the terrifying condition known as Locked-In Syndrome, at the age of 39. However, a chance telephone call from the same radio producer was to transform my shattered life, and thus give it meaning and purpose. More importantly, I was able to help transform the shattered lives of equally written-off, forgotten, people, affected by Locked In Syndrome, globally, The results are nothing short of astonishing.
I’ve learnt how important it is for people to be given a good quality of life back in the community. It’s simply not good enough to pat ourselves on the back for skillfully saving the lives of people who would have simply died a few years ago. We must consider how we can help make these survivors be the best they can be in our communities afterwards. Presently, most long-term Locked In Syndrome survivors merely just ‘exist’ pitifully in our nursing homes. I’ve also learnt there are ‘no promises, just possibilities’ and HOPE“.
