G2 Cover

March 30, 2011

This cover illustrates the story of Kevin Weller. He has been unable to move or speak since a stroke 21 years ago. Yet, he says, he can still enjoy life with locked-in syndrome.

“But though I’ve had my teary moments, I’ve always believed that if there’s life, there’s hope. With no exception. I know that some people who have been locked-in have asked not to be resuscitated if their heart stops, or have elected for euthanasia. But if that had been me, look at how much I would have missed.”

Kevin Weller told his story to Jill Clark with the help of his wife Janet, using an alphabet board. Published in The Guardian G2 supplement, Health, 29.03.11
