In 2018, Kieran Broadfield was involved in a near-fatal road traffic accident while on his way to work.
As a result, he spent 18 days in an induced coma, a further one month in hospital recovering and a lifetime living with the effects of his brain injury.
In this special Q&A feature, Kieran talks about the challenges he's faced following brain injury, his love for sport and his positive attitude to life moving forwards.
Sport. Thankfully I can still play sport, although I can't play to the standard I once did and I've lost my single-figure handicap in golf. Nevertheless, sport makes me extremely happy and when I'm playing, I am able to forget about my struggles for a little while.
I find that the best people to speak to and those who understand my brain injury the most are those who have been through something similar.
For me, it's that the people who were closest to me at the time of my injury couldn't see or believe the daily struggles that came when completing even the most basic tasks.
My brain injury has made me more determined to make something of myself in the future and it has made me realise that life is so precious and that it should never be taken for granted.
To fly. My family live in New Zealand and I haven't been able to visit them much since my injury. I miss them immensely
I'm not really sure. I guess a dog, like a Staffy. They have such a simple life and love the simple things, like food and playing fetch. My sister has the most beautiful little Staffy cross breed and she is always so happy.
