    Story

    We are continuing to raise funds for the amazing Joey Hutchinson and his two children. He is hoping to use the funds raised towards pioneering stem cell treatment being developed around the world to aid his recovery after the spinal cord injury he sustained.

    On June 3rd 2016 tragedy hit. While holidaying in Spain, a swimming pool accident left Joey paralysed from the chest down. The consequences were devestating. He had tragically severed his spinal cord after fracturing and dislocating the C5 vertebrae in his neck. after waking up two weeks later in hospital Joey's imediate concern was for the wellbeing of his two children and the reality of their future with no insurance to cover the costs of what will be needed to manage their new life.

    After being discharged from hospital following the painful process of seven months rehabilitation and recovery. He is continuing the long hard process of further rehabilitation and learning to manage his physical needs each day adapting to life in a wheelchair. He is accessing therapies to assist with pain management, muscle strengthening and flexibility. These being fundamental to his physical and mental health. He is actively researching ground breaking spinal cord treatments around the world in the hope he can access a suitable programme of treatment to improve his hand function and or even eventually so he can walk again.

    Joey has amazed his family and friends in the way he has faced this life changing event. His determination has been an inspiration to us all. We are hear to give Joey and his family ongoing support on this difficult and unpredictable road ahead by raising funds on this page. Any donation will be gratefully received.
