‘Thanks for sec­ond chance’

Ormskirk Advertiser - - News -

IN a Face­book post, which her fam­ily gave us per­mis­sion to re­pro­duce, Ge­or­gia Addy, now 16, said: “What a tough year it’s been, the flash­backs are prob­a­bly the worst mem­ory I have of the ac­ci­dent.

“I’ve come a long way but I have so much fur­ther to go.

“Coma, brain trauma, scars, knee prob­lems, fu­ture op­er­a­tions ...

“I’ve changed dras­ti­cally, but I hon­estly couldn’t thank Alder Hey enough, I am so grate­ful for ev­ery­one that had any­thing to do with me.

“Thank you for a sec­ond chance at life. The care I was given was un­be­liev­able.

“Three months in hospi­tal – eight months after the ac­ci­dent, I sat my GCSEs and now, one year down the line, I am at col­lege study­ing sci­ence to go on to medicine in the fu­ture.

“It’s been tough, but I got through it be­cause of my friends and fam­ily.

“Thank you for the love and sup­port, es­pe­cially this past year.”
