Donate today and change the lives of people impacted by a spinal cord injury.

What if the ability to repair a spinal cord injury became a reality? We are on the cusp of making this happen with a world-first Cell Transplantation and Rehabilitation Human Clinical Trial. 
Please make a tax-deductible donation today to change the lives of the tens of thousands of people in Australia and millions across the globe, who live every day with the challenges of paralysis. 

Every day, one Australian suffers a spinal cord injury.

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.

Meet Joy

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.

This is our moment to make history and
we need your help.

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.

Please watch this short video to learn more about how your donation will support spinal cord injury research.
