An undiagnosed spinal cord tumour (L1 to L3) haemorrhaged while Claire gave birth to her son.
Multiple surgeries and four months of hospital and rehab followed. That same year, she took on the Superhero Triathlon for us and was elected trustee in 2021. Claire is determined to improve awareness of the ‘hidden disabilities’ that underly spinal cord injuries – such as mental health and bladder issues. A healthcare communications director, Claire has a passion for bringing people’s stories to life and getting SCI people’s voices heard.
