Donating to Spinal Life Australia can change the lives of people living with spinal cord damage.
My spinal cord injury caused me to lose control over the muscles and nerves that help me breathe. Something I had always taken for granted, no longer came as easily as it once did.
Spinal Life Australia is supporting a new research initiative that looks to use vocal training to reverse the damage to respiratory muscles caused by spinal cord damage.
A spinal cord injury changed my entire life in an instant and I faced a whole new set of challenges, physically, mentally and socially.
Spinal Life Australia is supporting innovative research into making the lives of people with spinal cord damage, like me, easier and more independent.
After my spinal cord injury, I had little choice but to move to the Gold Coast to continue my vital ongoing rehabilitation work, away from my family and friends in Cairns.
I was extremely happy to hear that Spinal Life Australia is constructing a Healthy Living Centre in Cairns, giving people like me a chance to continue rehabilitation in my hometown.
Thank you for choosing to donate to Spinal Life Australia.
About 90 people sustain spinal cord injuries in Queensland each year – that’s one person every four days.
Your donation will help us to continue to:
- Work with Griffith University and The Hopkins Centre in supporting research into next-generation advancements in rehabilitation and work towards finding a cure for spinal cord injury
- Advocate for Queenslanders with spinal cord damage and giving them a voice in their community
- Provide peer-to-peer support and health and education workshops to give people the support and knowledge they need to get back to work or study
- Provide services across regional Queensland so people with spinal cord damage can access services, when and where they need them, closer to home.
