About Kate Allatt

Imagine being buried alive, where you can think and feel normally, but move absolutely nothing? You can hear & see everything going on but you are unable to communicate you can understand anything to anyone? Well I recovered, thrived and now inspire others, globally. I’m the founder of Fighting Strokes Trust. My first of three books - ‘Running Free' - is internationally published. I work passionately and voluntarily for my charity. I’m a keynote speaker, educator and patient health advocate. Finally, I pioneered a large stroke research bid which we hope will aid upper limb stroke recovery for others. I write blogs regularly – Stroke Recovery Tips & arockystrokerecovery - and I’m delighted to be posting blogs on talkhealth which specifically aid all types of stroke recovery – both physical & emotional recovery. My blog posts will be monthly and I always welcome your comments and feedback. A few of my notable media credits include: BBC Radio 2 Jeremy Vine, Globo TV Brazil, RTL Germany, BBC WORLD SERVICE, BBC Breakfast ABC Radio Australia, The Sunday Indian Times, Victoria Derbyshire podcast, , BBC The One Show, ITV This Morning, , the Voice Russia. ‘No promises, just possibilities.’
