A TEEN model has beaten the odds and has relearned to walk and talk after surviving a stroke age 12. Growing up with three older sisters, Rafi Solaiman was the typical younger brother: full of energy and enthusiasm he would run around the house, play sports in the garden and do whatever he could to wind up his siblings.
All of that changed when aged 12, Rafi suffered a stroke and brain haemorrhage so severe it left his body in locked in syndrome. Rafi had to learn how to walk, talk – and even blink again. Now 18 years old, while Rafi is still affected by the stroke, he has an exciting future ahead of him.
