Everyone is facing challenges of their own on a daily basis. Sometimes we feel like giving up or like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You and I can only imagine what it might have been like for Andrew, waking up helpless one morning, relying on everyone else for simple day to day tasks. He has been there.
About Andrew Merryweather
Andrew was bullied by a group of school boys from affluent schools who believed him to be gay. He was beaten up so badly that he was left a quadriplegic paralysed from the chest down unable to feel, move or speak. Andrew was told by doctors that he would never walk again and he should get used to life in a wheelchair. That could have been the end of the story but it was not. Showing enormous courage and determination, Andrew refused to accept the perception people had of his limitations.
