I am mum to Isaac, and we have been members of BICT since 2011. As a nurse, I knew the challenges I was up against when Isaac suffered a Hypoxic Brain Injury post-birth. I had been an Emergency nurse for many years and knew what Hypoxia did to the brain; I also knew the limited resources that traditional medicine could offer us.

I was introduced to Shirley when Isaac was 18 months old and it felt like I was finally speaking with someone who had the same determination and belief that I had; that there was another ‘way’ through this.

We soon after started Isaac on a Neuro Developmental Therapy program with Ian Hunter. The results Isaac had within a few weeks were enough to tell me we were finally on the right path.

 I have no doubt without the support of BICT and committing to the hard work of NDTP that Isaac would not be where he is today.

NDTP can be lifelong for some kids/adults, Isaac continues on  this journey. My wish is for all families like us to have access to the opportunities we have had, I am proud to  be serving BICT as a part of the Programme’s Committee.

Would you like to help?

We are always looking for volunteers, sponsors, or donations to support us in improving the lives of brain injured children. Thank you for reaching out.
