How to come back from Quadriplegia - The Billy Hedderman Story
Billy Hedderman is a former Irish special forces army officer who left home for Australia in 2014. Three months later he found himself lying on a beach paralysed from the neck down fully sure his life as he knew it was done. And yet somehow, through sheer determination, grit and will power he dragged himself back from the brink. His return, his comeback to full health and mobility is a real life Rocky story and forms part of Jarlath's new podcast series, “An Irishman Abroad: Coming Home”. You can read the full story of Billy Hedderman and his remarkable recovery in his book “Unbowed” published by Mercier Press.
