Life Choices

Brenton Alford is a 39 year old who holds a Bachelors of Recreation. He used to work at the Collingwood Football Club, and was planning to move to South Australia for a better job. One week before Brent was leaving for South Australia he decided to have a few drinks with his friends. He woke up seven and a half weeks later in hospital.

Brent had no recollection of falling from the second floor balcony at the back of the night club he was at. Once he came of the coma he discovered he had severe head injuries and 17 broken bones. The doctors told him that he would almost certainly spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair and would never regain the use of his left arm and he would only have minimal use of his left leg.

But to the amazement of his doctors and rehab providers Brent is now capable of moving his arms and is out of the wheelchair. Brenton walks 15,000 steps a day and can move all his fingers. Brenton now owns his own business as a speaker and focuses his talks on Life Choices and his weakness, binge drinking or alcohol.

Brent volunteers for the Portsea Camp at four camps a year and also talks at the September teen camp.
