Just after starting his A-levels in 1986, Damian was diagnosed with a rare type of bone cancer which resulted in an amputation from his left hip. He threw himself into living his life and qualified as a Biomedical Scientist.

In 2013 his world collapsed when his past traumas caught up with him and he was diagnosed with PTSD and chronic depression; spending most of his days in bed.
