• TAKING CHARGE: A Journey of Recovery

    This book is the story of Graham’s partial recovery from Transverse Myelitis, a paralysing spinal condition that left him with ongoing loss of sensation and power in both legs, and a range of other handicaps.

    Seeing the hospital from the inside for the first time, Graham’s intensely personal report of his journey will make you both laugh and cry.
