Janice Toovey - Creator of our charity group name: Superficial Siderosis - The Silent Bleed

"Paul's doctors in London always said the bleed lies silent in the body.  They don't even know if it's been present from birth, major surgery in 2001 or a fall in the playground (age eight) when he had his first stroke, so Paul's bleed is definitely silent."
