Woman Who Experienced Brain Damage Bouncing Back with Challenge


(Eastern Daily Press) – Just over two years ago Zara Dyer was fighting for her life after suffering serious brain injuries in a horrific car crash. Now, after making a remarkable recovery, Miss Dyer is aiming to help others by launching a new charity that is supporting brain injury recovery.

It comes as she prepares for an epic challenge – to walk from John O’Groats to Lands End in May next year for around three-and-a-half months.

Miss Dyer suffered a seizure while driving a car in Grand Cayman – where she was working as a scuba diving instructor – which caused her to collide with a wall and resulted in the brain damage.

The injuries – which included a broken neck, complete paralysis on her right hand side and six bleeds on the brain – were so severe that her family were warned that they should fly out to see her immediately. CONTINUE
