Katie Piper's Extraordinary People

Lucy Dawson is Extraordinary!

Episode notes

Lucy Dawson is the epitome of the word extraordinary, and what this podcast is all about! At 20 years old, whilst in her final year of university, Lucy experienced head pain which quickly evolved into manic episodes, leading to her being sectioned by medical professionals for 3 months. 

This however was the opposite of the treatment Lucy really needed. As we now know, she had encephalitis, a deadly and acute inflammation of the brain and due to the malpractice at the hospital, she is also now paralysed on her left leg. 

Listen to Lucy tell Katie about her pretty unbelievable story, and as a model and activist, what Lucy is doing now, so others don’t go through what she did.

This is a Somethin’ Else production.
