Kris Tucker was born in the UK and raised in South Africa, before moving to Australia in 1997 to escape the turmoil of Apartheid.
“The night before a planned family trip to Melbourne to attend my youngest brother’s wedding, I experienced the most painful headache of my life. After many hours at the emergency department, we were told I had a brain aneurysm that had burst.
“I spent two weeks in the ICU at Sydney’s Royal Prince Alfred (RPA) Hospital, where the aneurysm was ‘coiled’, which blocks the blood flow. I was discharged and returned to normal life with no ill effects.
