Product description

Product Description

As a soldier, Peter Coghlan faced bombs, bullying, murderous mobs and Hodgkins Lymphoma, the aggressive cancer which ended his military career. But after moving to Perth, Australia with Jade, the love of his life, there was no time to dwell on the past as Peter enjoyed a pre-dinner drink on the patio with friends and family. The future on that hot, sunny evening seemed as bright as the weather until, suddenly and shockingly, his dreams were shattered by a massive brain stem stroke.
A frantic dash to hospital and emergency surgery rushed by in a blur and it was only when Peter awoke from a coma that he realised the awful truth. The stroke had left him virtually paralysed, imprisoned in his own body.
At least he could blink. Using an alphabet board to communicate, he spelled out his determination to get back everything he’d lost.
This true life account of one man’s fight against Locked-In Syndrome (LIS) is in turn heart-breaking, hilarious, harrowing and occasionally shocking. Yet, thanks to Peter's amazing courage, In the Blink of an Eye is never less than inspirational as he faces his greatest battle of all.

About the Author

Peter Coghlan was brought up in Stockport and the High Peak before joining the army and serving in Northern Ireland in the late 1990s. After diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, he left the army and emigrated to Perth, Australia to make a new life for himself and his partner Jade. But their plans for the future disintegrated when Pete was struck down by a massive brain stem stroke which left him 'locked-in', totally paralysed except for his eyes! With grit, determination and humour, he charts his experiences and record-breaking recovery which he hopes will help and inspire other victims of stroke and brain injury.
