Simon Sansome is now one of the country's leading lights in the world of disability, named as one of the most influential in Britain. This is the story of how it all began...

 

Just a month after marrying his dream woman Kate, Simon attended his usual chiropractic appointment to work on his long lasting rugby injury in his lower back.

Little did Simon know, this visit would change his life. His chiropractor caused serious damage resulting in Simon collapsing on his walk back to his car with no feeling left from his belly button down.

Simon turned to the NHS and their expert doctors to help him, but they overlooked an emergency operation, claiming there was 'no clear cause' for his situation meaning Simon would suffer permanent disablement for the rest of his life.

Simon had lost the use of his body from the waist down and then his job. Tragedy further struck when Kate lost their child while Simon was in hospital. The last time the couple made love was to be their first and only chance of having a family.

Simon was not going to give up! With Kate by his side, he took his battle to the courts. With no money, legal aid or training he fought against not only his employer but the NHS itself.

This was no ordinary case. He had to win...
