Mum’s Incredible Recovery from Brain Injury, Defying Odds

Rachel Harry

(The Leader) – A MUM who doctors had feared may not survive a brain injury has completed a three-year therapy course and overcome the odds.

Rachel Harry, of Llwyn Onn in Wrexham, has been undergoing intensive physiotherapy to learn to walk again and have speech therapy since giving birth to her daughter Freya in July 2012.

The 35-year-old has been having treatment at The Brain Injury Rehabilitation and Development (BIRD) charity, based in Eccleston, near Chester.
