Stabbed through the heart but now using fitness to help others

When he was 17, up-and-coming boxer Kieran had his phone stolen. After chasing down the thief, Kieran was stabbed through the lung, aorta and heart. Miraculously, he survived but suffered PTSD from the incident, and doctors told him his boxing days were over. Kieran resolved to educate others on knife crime and he also set up his own gym with the hope of using his fitness knowledge to help people in need, like Dean, who has MS.

If you’ve been affected by knife crime, these organisations can help.
