Paul Fink   is very lucky to be alive.
Their family was nearly torn apart when - aged just 34 years, Paul suffered a massive stroke

A sport obsessed and health conscious man, Paul showed none of the warning signs of someone likely to suffer a traumatic brain injury. But in the prime of his life, a new dream job working at AFL house, a beautiful new baby boy and having just moved into a brand new house, everything came crumbling down. Paul ended up fighting for his life in a hospital bed where against all odds he managed to survive but found himself, paralysed and unable to communicate.
His story is one of beating the odds and finding the silver lining when life deals you what seems to be an unwinnable hand.

Don't miss this opportunity to hear his extraordinary story.
