The importance of Quarriers Renfrewshire Head Injury Service has been underlined by the Scott family during Action for Brain Injury Week.
Willie and his wife Donna have been supported by the service since May 2019 after Willie was hospitalised after he experienced an acquired brain injury – frontal intracerebral abscess in January 2019.
Donna shared: “It’s now a year since my husband had a brain abscess, spent 2 weeks in ICU and had two operations. He got home 1st April 2019 and we were left struggling with what to do next.
“Then Quarriers Renfrewshire Head Injury Service got in touch with us and we met with Margaret and Billy who have supported us ever since.
“So, to thank them myself and my family were going to do Kiltwalk to raise funds to recognise all their support, as they have been amazing”.
Donna and her daughter Kirsty have been keen to both raise awareness of brain injury as well as raising funds for Renfrewshire Head Injury Service and on 6th May have reached a total of £2306 after signing up for the Glasgow 2020 Kiltwalk.
Kirsty explained: “Quarriers Renfrewshire Head Injury Service have been a massive support to my dad and family in the past year. This charity do an amazing job and we would like to raise as much money as possible for them.”
Quarriers Renfrewshire Head Injury Service provides advice and support to adults aged 17 years and above including family members who have experienced a brain injury and live within Renfrewshire local authority.
