Chris’s life changed in a split second when he was caught in a rocket attack in Afghanistan
The impact fractured his skull, causing severe brain injuries. As a result, Chris could no longer see out of his right eye and lost peripheral vision in his left.
His shocking injuries meant his time as a soldier was over.
With his eyesight permanently damaged, Chris wasn’t just worried about losing his career – he wondered how he’d be a hands-on father to his children.
This Christmas, will you take a moment to think about ex-Service men and women like Chris who bravely served our country?
They now need your support as they face an entirely new challenge – to rebuild their lives after losing their sight.
