Hi, my name is Rebecca Baudains and I Wanna Be a Cure Girl!
I am from Jersey in the Channel Islands. Near England, but we are on an island.
I had a horseriding accident in June 95. I was 22. I am paraplegic. I believe we are all some day going to get the opportunity to stand if not walk. Even it is with some kind of help.
I want badly to be one of the girls to be cured just like all your cure girls. I live an “active” life. I work in a bank since having to retrain after my accident. I have done sponsored walk/pushes. I do the marathon relay in Jersey.
I have a young son who is 5 and a husband, neither of them has seen me walk. I want that, one day I’d like to get married again and walk down the aisle. And I hope I make it!
I think chronic spinal cord injury must be curable. I have heard so many reports of how scientists are developing cures and making rats walk again. For this reason, next year I will be raising all money for Unite 2 Fight Paralysis http://u2fp.org/ .
