This week sees the latest publication on the Who Are You Now? website - telling the life stories of brain injury survivors.

Trudy rose to the top of the nursing profession by her mid-twenties – the first phase of a brilliant career. Always seeking new challenges, she excelled at everything she turned her hand to.
