Earlier this year Laura Fergusson Brain Injury Trust Client, Wilson Murray was leaning against a window louvre outside his apartment when part of it broke. He fell three storeys to the ground and suffered a traumatic brain injury.
“The paramedics arrived only a few minutes after his fall, which saved his life,” Wilson’s mum Laura says. “But after he was discharged from hospital, he went to Laura Fergusson, and received care every day to help his rehabilitation.”
Wilson adds, “I definitely was not ready to go home after I left hospital. The care I received at Laura Fergusson was pivotal to my recovery. Overall, my time at Laura Fergusson was great. I kept a positive attitude and the therapists helped me recover hugely. All the staff were great at supporting my recovery.”
Upon hearing of the Laura Fergusson Brain Injury Trust Giving Day, to be held on Thursday 19th November, the family of Wilson Murray decided to become a matching donor. This means that all donations received on the day will be tripled thanks to their generosity and that of our other matching donors. Wilson’s Mum Laura says, “We decided to become a matching donor to give back to the organisation, because it was just fabulous that Laura Fergusson was there to help when Wilson needed it. He would not be where he is today without it”.
Wilson is doing well. He has just finished university for the semester and is taking a summer school class to help him catch up on the time he missed while recovering. We wish him all the very best with his ongoing recovery.
We would like to sincerely thank Wilson’s family for becoming a matching donor and supporting the Laura Fergusson Brain Injury Trust to help more people who receive a brain injury.
