Why Your Support Matters

Brett Whiteley was just 44 when he lost his right arm and leg in a head-on collision with a ute. The ute was overtaking and didn’t see Brett coming the other way.

“It’s tough to have things taken away from you. I lost my arm and my leg, my job, my driving license.

However, I just made a decision that I wanted to live. And in many ways I was very lucky. I didn’t suffer any brain or spinal damage or internal injuries and I healed really quickly.

I’ve had huge support from my friends and family. And I met a guy in hospital who said I should get out sailing with SWD.

I was nervous at first, but I’ve been welcomed with open arms. And every time I go out on the boat, I learn new skills.”
