Battling Guillain Barre Syndrome to Become a Physiotherapist

Rachael Bailey is a physiotherapist from England who had a life changing experience which led her to become a physiotherapist.

After a weekend in college, she became ill quickly but like any other college student did not think too seriously. In a matter of days, she was admitted to the ICU and diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome

This diagnosis did not only affect Rachael physically but also emotionally altering her mental health.

Rachael was blessed for the physios who worked with her along this journey. She eventually switched her degree with the goal to help others the way she was cared for in the hospital.
