Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit ourJustGiving page.

On Tuesday 24th September myself and Den set out for 6 days to walk the last 117km of the Camino de Santiago - completing our pilgrimage On 29th. To get to this point and be ready to take on this personal challenge has been quite a journey for us and while doing this we would like to ask for your help to raise some much-needed funds for Aspire.

18 months ago I faced complicated and risky thoracic spine surgery, as a large calcified prolapsed disc had slowly impacted on my spinal cord, meaning that I was losing sensation and control in my legs. As someone who had prided themselves of keeping fit and active this came hard. The surgery was very scary and carried a risk of paralysis and other complications, but by the time I had the operation I was barely able to walk a mile. I was lucky in that the surgery was successful, but we'd both like to help others who suffer with spinal cord injury and need help to regain independent lives.
