Walking back to happiness

A WOMAN who was told she was unlikely to walk again and then diagnosed with cancer has made a remarkable recovery.

Aideen Jones, 45, completed a 5km charity walk from Henley to Shiplake on Sunday together with family and friends.

Yet less than 18 months ago the former Henley pub landlady thought her life was effectively over after being paralysed from the chest down.

She said: “I never imagined I would be able to walk one kilometre, never mind five. It was an absolutely amazing feeling.”

Mrs Jones, of Ryecroft Close, Wargrave, woke one Saturday morning in March last year unable to move. Her husband Kevin, 52, rushed her to the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading where she was given a CT scan.
