Throughout her racing career, lorraine Truong has suffered a number of bad concussions but in Samoens last year she suffered her worst yet. It left her in a constant battle with her own brain.
She said: “The best way I can describe it is like in a motor car… imagine you had a great car with a silent engine, then one day you had a crash. The car still drives OK, but the engine is now noisy, clanking, and howling – that’s how it feels living inside my head.”
Now he’s seeking some funding to help with her recovery process. For just a small donation you could help her get the treatment she needs and win some awesome prizes too
We’ll let Lorraine take up the story:
Lorraine Truong – Fund Raising and Raffle
For the past 16 months Lorraine Truong has been fighting to live with the limitations, daily pain and discomfort from multiple brain injuries sustained while riding and racing her bike. It has changed her life beyond recognition, where even simple tasks are now a huge challenge. She needs our help.
Although Lorraine has received good medical support in Switzerland, there’s no quick fix and knowledge of treatments for brain injuries is still in its early stages.
To try to find solutions Lorraine hopes to travel to the USA where more advanced treatments are available, which could help with her recovery. However, treatment like this is not covered by her medical insurance and can be very expensive.
We want to raise funds to take away the day-to-day worry of these costs for Lorraine and ultimately help to get her life back and hopefully one day to get back on her bike.
We have secured massive support from the industry and many riders to offer every person who donates to Lorraine’s Recovery Fund an opportunity to win some amazing prizes. For every 10€ you donate you will be entered into the prize draw – so the more you give the better your chances of winning one of these amazing prizes.
