His mum, Sharon, was told that Kile would improve for a year but would then decline each year. However, through hard work and determination, Kile overcame all the odds, improving more and more each year, and although Kile's abilities are limited, he even managed to complete a cycling challenge to raise money for the brain injury charity, Headway.
Watch Kile's inspirational story and hear from his mum, Sharon, his sister, Zoey, and his support worker, Sara.
