I was injured in a nightclub during a night out with friends back in 2004. I sustained a C4/5 spinal cord injury (left paralysed in a wheelchair) I spent ten months in a rehab hospital and from the day I left I fight every single day to regain my independence and also WALK AGAIN👣
I'm a proud member of the CURE GIRLS - we are a group of women from all over the world LIVING with spinal cord injuries and we tirelessly campaign, raise awareness but most of all raise money which funds vital RESEARCH to CURE paralysis! Take a look at our latest campaign published exclusively in Totally Aesthetic Magazine: http://www.totallyaesthetic.com/fierce-feisty-fighting-for-a-cure-meet-the-cure-girls/
THERE ARE 2.5 MILLON PEOPLE WORLDWIDE LIVING WITH A SPINAL CORD INJURY.
I am planning to do my 4th virtual cycle for charity. Cycling the equivalent distance from Rome to Cannes which is 300 miles, starting on 2nd January 2017. It will be the longest cycle I've done plus I will also be giving up alcohol for 3 months!!!!
This means I will have cycled over 1,100 miles for charity!
Every penny raised goes to The NICHOLLS SPINAL INJURY FOUNDATION who you may have heard from the Panorama documentary where Prof Geoffrey Raisman and his team carried out groundbreaking nerve cell transplant which led to a man taking his first steps after being paralysed. This is very early stages of these trials and they need ten million pounds to carry on this amazing work.. I believe if you really want to see a cure we need to raise these funds as soon as possible. Every donation matters.. Thank you so much for all your love and support!
