In 2020, Ian Hawkins’ family were told by doctors and nurses at The Walsall Manor Hospital to prepare for the worst. Ian was admitted into hospital after developing Covid-19 symptoms and experiencing breathing difficulties, and from there his health rapidly declined. Within 24 hours, he was placed on full ventilation.
Ian spent over two months in hospital having suffered from a multitude of serious conditions from pneumonia and sepsis to multiple organ failure and a secondary bacterial infection. He was an extremely sick man.
Remarkably, and with the help of the incredible Critical Care Rehabilitation Team at The Walsall Manor Hospital, Ian fought back to tell the tale today. Now, he wants to give something back to show his appreciation. Ian’s Walk will be taking place on Sunday 27th June, a 26 mile hike that will hopefully raise valuable funds for the department. And Coinadrink Limited are proud sponsors!
