After a night out with friends a freak incident occurred which left Lolly paralysed. Sabrina was on a simulated ‘air surf’ which went terribly wrong and left her paralysed.
Lolly and Sabrina are very similar, not only in having the same level SCI C4/5 but also in SPIRIT. They have amazing family and friends and they love to have fun and love life. They also strive everyday to support research and cure so they can regain their independence.
At the moment in Brazil there isn’t a charity which raises funds for medical research into spinal cord injured people so they have both chosen to raise money for SPINAL RESEARCH UK.
Spinal Research is the UK’s leading charity funding medical research around the world to develop reliable treatments for paralysis caused by a broken back or neck.
Every year, 1,000 people in the UK and Ireland are paralysed following an injury to their spinal cord. Spinal Research raises money to fund research into clinical treatments as well as vital basic science research. Thanks to such pioneering research, paralysis can now be treated and we stand on the brink of applying therapies that will restore movement and feeling and transform the lives of paralysed people.
