As a paramedic of 20 years, I have personal experience with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). As a result, my road career has ended, like it has for so many others in a similar situation to me. PTSD is hard to explain, hard to live with and hard to work through. It affects individuals and their families. Being a paramedic was a massive part of who I was, so I have had to find something else to focus on, so bring on the Finke Desert Race and in 2023 I am planning on giving it a crack. To make it worthwhile, I am raising money and awareness for PTSD in our Ambulance, Fire and Police first responders. Please visit my Fundraising Page for Sirens of Silence!
