Hello, I am Alan.

I got a small cut on the side of my index finger – within 36-48hrs I was rushed into hospital with Septicaemia. My finger was taken off to the knuckle, and then several days later I got Necrotising Fasciitis.

I was taken down for further surgery to have my knuckle and flesh taken away. I had further surgery and had my arm cut from the wrist to the elbow down to the muscle, it was left open so the bugs could eat the blood.

I have been very lucky – I have been given a second chance to live. This happened February 2000; I am getting there slowly.

If any person would like to have a chat I will be happy to help in any way I can
