Born and bred in nearby Port Kembla, Raf says the Illawarra feels like home. In 2018, at the age of 48, Raf suffered a stroke that left him with significant mobility loss and an acquired brain injury. After months of hard work, he was able to work with a Supportive Team to assist him in standing independently.
He loves motorbikes, going to the pub, heading to the beach, and living as independently as possible. With ongoing and intensive physiotherapy, Raf is moving towards his personal long-term goals every day.
