Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
On the 6th of May this year, my mum suffered a terrible accident which resulted in life changing injuries to her spine and mobility. As a result of this accident, life as she knew it changed immediately. Having spent 3 months in the John Radcliffe Intensive Care Unit, she finally got a bed in Stoke Mandeville Spinal Unit on 12th August. She will be there for some months, until she reaches her potential. Aspire Charity, together with the Spinal Injuries Association is a charity I've never really paid attention to in the past. Selfishly, I'm glad I've never had a reason to. Unfortunately, now I do. So I'm doing this challenge (swimming 22 miles, in 12 weeks) for my mum and ultimately to raise awareness of the fantastic work they do. Its a devastating, but unfortunately true statistic, that, every 8 hours someone is paralysed from a spinal cord injury. Please, if you can, donate. Many thanks. Amy xxx
