In regards to Grahams personal life he has first hand experienced that everyone is capable of overcoming lifes challenges. In 1988 a near death car crash left him with two smashed legs, one of which was hanging on by a thread. It took him 12 years to rebuild his legs, during which time he visited seven different hospitals had over 30 major operations and lived with the fear of amputation. He has since gone on to trek across the Andes to Machu Picchu, parachuted from 3,000 feet and cycled hundreds of miles for various charities.
