Joanne McCarroll

Joanne’s story

Joanne was born in august 1986, at 3 weeks while being bathed she had some funny eye movements that lasted a few minutes she had already had some stiffness but this was explained as normal reflexes in newborns, but the eye flickering concerned me so I took her to the doctor who then referred Joanne to a paediatrician.

Lucie Bailey

Lucies story

My name is Lucie Elizabeth Bailey. I was born on 14th November, 1986 and I have Alternating Hemiplegia. I have experienced many things in my life. I could sit up by myself at 8 months and started walking at 2 years and 2 months. At 4 years old I started nursery school and moved into the infants at 6. I was nearly 12 when I moved up into high school. I attended a girl’s school for moderate learning and spent 5 years there. I was able to pass a couple of exams at Welsh Grade but my greatest achievement was being awarded The Princess Diana Award for Outstanding Achievement.
