Thanks for visiting my page!

The spinal cord is what connects our brains to the rest of our bodies. Depending on the location of the injuries of the spinal cord it can lead to:

1) Impaired function from the neck down, including swallowing, speech and movement of the arms and hands

2) Difficulties with breathing and digestion

3) Impaired movement in the legs and feet and paralysis

4) Impaired bladder and bowel control

5) Impeded Sexual function. 

Unfortunately, many of these impairments remain untreatable and are debilitating for the sufferer.  More research is required to improve outcomes and treatment and the patients’ quality of life.

I was inspired to fundraise for Spinal Research UK, because I have seen the impact spinal cord injuries can have through a close friend, whose life is still affected every day despite having surgery four years ago for a Scoliosis (curvature of the spine).

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. 

I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.

Many thanks,

Elisabeth
