In the early hours of Boxing day morning 2020, Christian fell down the stairs at his home he shares with his wife Victoria. He was rushed to hospital where it was confirmed he had a dislocation of the C7 and fracture of the T1 vertebrae. This caused the vertebrae to put pressure on the spinal cord. Christian was in intensive care at Brighton Hospital for 2 weeks and underwent vital surgery before moving to a ward and then eventually to Stanmore Rehab Center on the 22nd January where he remains.
Christian is unable to move his legs and will continue to stay at Stanmore through his intensive recovery plan. Once he is able to leave hospital and go home to his parents house where he will move with his wife (they’re own home is not big enough for wheelchair access) he will need continued physiotherapy and other treatments to give him the best chance of using his legs again. The first 2 years are important as its when the most progress can be made.
Christian has endured the last 9 weeks under exceptional circumstances. He has been unable to have his family by his side and has had to deal with so much of these life changes alone. It has been heartbreaking for the family who so wish to see him and give him the physical and emotional support he needs face to face.
Christian, is the most wonderful person. He has worked with us at Studio Lambert over the past 9 years and is a much loved and respected colleague who is sorely missed at the moment. Anyone who knows Christian knows he’s a football loving, trainer obsessive, caring and loveable man who gives excellent hugs to boot. We’d be so grateful if you can support his journey to being able to walk again.
