WHO ARE THE CURE GIRLS?
We are a group of women from across the world all living with a spinal cord injury. We work tirelessly everyday campaigning, fundraising and have one mission to make CHRONIC SPINAL CORD INJURY CURABLE.
Cure Girl Lolly is from the UK and Cure Girl Sabrina is from Brazil. The girls will be getting together in Brazil to do some filming, fundraising and raising awareness.. spreading the CURE message.
After a night out with friends a freak incident occurred which left Lolly paralysed. Sabrina was on a simulated 'air surf' which went terribly wrong and left her paralysed.
Lolly and Sabrina are very similar, not only in having the same level SCI C4/5 but also in SPIRIT. They have amazing family and friends and they love to have fun and love life. They also strive everyday to support research and cure so they can regain their independence.
At the moment in Brazil there isn't a charity which raises funds for medical research into spinal cord injured people so they have both chosen to raise money for SPINAL RESEARCH.
Spinal Research is the UK’s leading charity funding medical research around the world to develop reliable treatments for paralysis caused by a broken back or neck. Spinal Research raises money to fund research into clinical treatments as well as vital basic science research. Thanks to such pioneering research, paralysis can now be treated and we stand on the brink of applying therapies that will restore movement and feeling and transform the lives of paralysed people.
Our pioneering research relies on dynamic fundraising and the help of our tireless supporters. We have funded over 120 research projects which have achieved a number of groundbreaking changes in the field.
Spinal Research UK é líder na arrecadação de fundos financiados através de doações ao redor do mundo para desenvolver tratamentos confiáveis para Lesões da medula espinhal.
Estima-se que há 3 milhões de lesados no mundo atualmente e que todo ano mais de 130 mil pessoas sofram com danos na coluna seguidos de paralisia. Spinal Research arrecada dinheiro para financiar pesquisas acerca de tratamentos clínicos. Graças a essa pesquisa pioneira a Lesão Medular pode ser tratada, estamos próximos de terapias aplicáveis que futuramente possam restaurar movimentos e sentimentos, transformando a vida de pessoas paralisadas.
