 Never Give Up

Tom Ryan-Elliott has epilepsy and aphasia because of a brain injury he received while on holiday in Las Vegas. He has no recollection of the accident and has had several years of rehabilitation. 

His epilepsy gives him Simple Focal and Atonic Clonic seizures, and the aphasia affects his speech and language processing. Over time he has developed coping strategies and with the use of technology he is on a mission to re-enter the world of employment.

Now a keen photographer Tom’s moto is ‘never give up’.
