In April 2013, Lisa, aged 15, was involved in a road traffic collision whilst on her bike delivering the morning paper round. Lisa was placed into a coma for five days resulting in short term memory loss. Lisa and her family are hugely grateful for the rapid airlift that made such a major contribution to saving her life and now regularly fundraises for the charity.
Her father Steve shares her story: “On 25th April 2013 Lisa was hit by a car on a blind bend whilst crossing the road. Lisa was unconscious when the North West Air Ambulance Charity arrived and was taken to North Staffordshire Hospital immediately where she remained in a coma for five days and spent almost three weeks in hospital. Although for a while Lisa suffered with short term memory loss, thankfully she has no memory of the accident. Lisa has now fully recovered and has been so inspired by the care she received during this time that she is now hoping to become a medic. We believe that Lisa wouldn’t be here today without the assistance of the North West Air Ambulance Charity.”
