My story

[p]Back in July 2013 a friends son was diagnosed with a Spinal abscess which caused compression and subsequent damage to his spinal cord. He was told he may not walk again, but thanks to the amazing skill and dedication of the neurosurgical team at St George's hospital in Tooting followed by rehabilitation at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore , he made an excellent recovery. A spinal cord injury is a devastating life changing event for so many people , and for this reason we as a family want to support Spinal Research , a charity which raises vital funds to support ongoing research projects which will help to develop treatments to improve the quality of life for the many people who sustain Spinal injury each year. [/p][p]Every day three people in the UK are paralysed because of an injury to their spinal cord. This is life changing and even the most basic tasks such as brushing of hair, cleaning teeth, going to the toilet or simply getting dressed can no longer be undertaken. To find out how a spinal cord injury can affect life, go to https://www.spinal-research.org/ [/p][p]To run the London Marathon is one of my lifetime goals and I consider myself very privileged to be healthy and fit enough to undertake it. The training will be hard but knowing I am helping such a worthwhile charity will spur me on when it is cold and wet over the winter. I will update all on my progress as the months go by!!![/p][p]Please support me to reach my target of £1800. Every penny counts. [/p]
