Katya’s Journey

My Story

In January 2023, I was struck down with Guillain-Barre Syndrome, paralysing my body up to my neck. Unable to breathe, I was put on a ventilator to keep me alive. I spent two months in the Hallamshire hospital and at the time, wondered whether I would ever be able to move again, walk again, let alone, run again. The last year has been a journey of difficult times, determination and discovery. My journey continues. I owe my life to the Sheffield Hospitals.
