Paralysed then running marathons

Emma Cretten

In Sept 2015 I was suddenly paralysed from the waist down it was discovered I had a rare sciatic nerve tumour called a Schwannoma which had spread up my spine where part of my spine was removed in surgery tumour burnt off then put together... after surgery I was given a 10% chance of walking again let alone run and as a runner that was devastating news ....I chose not to listen a year later I ran a half marathon since then I have run a marathon and lots of half marathons. Please Never Give up x
