A big HELLO and welcome to my new website!
In 2004 during a night out with friends an incident occurred which transformed my life. Suddenly I was lying on the floor of a nightclub totally paralysed. I knew that something was terribly wrong when all I could do was blink, my friends were telling me to get up but I couldn’t. Paramedics arrived and took me to hospital where I had emergency surgery. After a six hour operation I was told by doctors that my spinal cord was damaged ie compressed.What followed was ten months of rehabilitation in a spinal unit miles away from my home. During this time my family and I decided to fight this situation all the way and do everything we can for me to WALK AGAIN. I feel so blessed and lucky to have such an amazing family and support of my best friends.
Since returning home I still work very hard to maintain my fitness, working with my physio five times per week. I retain my passion for the same things I had pre-injury namely travelling, fashion, music and glamour modelling too!
One of my key aims is to promote awareness of spinal cord injury and raise funds for charities that will fund research for a cure. On March 3rd 2013 I’m planning to do a skydive for SPINAL RESEARCH and Back-up which I’m very excited about. Help me spread the word people and also to donate for my worthy cause.
Thanks for your support,
Lots of love
