A spinal cord injury (SCI) can happen to anyone at any time.
The injury can result in paralysis and it can mean living the rest of your life reliant on a wheelchair. It is not just about the terrible restriction of being confined to a wheelchair, there is also the loss of independence and freedom and increased isolation. Essentially, having a spinal injury is life altering with huge ramifications as a result.
Joy is a dedicated mum to three beautiful children who fell from her horse on Christmas Eve and landed on her back. She became a paraplegic in that moment.
She remembers waking up on the ground with ambulance officers working over her and her terrified family telling her the helicopter would arrive soon.
Your generous support today gives hope of a cure to mothers like Joy.
In partnership with The Spinal Injury Project at Griffith University Gold Coast, we are now ready to commence a world-first Cell Transplantation and Rehabilitation Human Clinical Trial.
The incredible project team is a leading group of research specialists including bioengineers, medical doctors, biological scientists and educators working together to develop this breakthrough treatment.
Put simply, this treatment involves the transplantation of the patient’s own olfactory cells from the nose into the spinal cord. Central to the success of this treatment is intensive rehabilitation that takes place before and after the cell transplantation.
