This article tells the story of a man known as Pete Coghlan. Pete once had an ordinary life: possessed a house, a full-time job and a partner that so many of us take for granted. Things were going quite well for the special force’s military man. He was always as tough as nails and had a heart of gold. But on one unfortunate day, Pete suffered from a stroke which changed his life drastically. As a result, he found himself one day waking from a coma paralysed lying in a hospital bed.
