Spinal Research is the UK’s leading medical research charity working to end paralysis for people with spinal cord injury.
Spinal cord injury affects an estimated 50,000 people in the UK and Ireland, and millions worldwide. Every day three more people in the UK become paralysed by spinal cord injury.
Spinal cord injury can happen to anyone at any time and is life-changing. The most common causes are a broken back or neck from a fall, road traffic accident or sporting injury.
Most people who suffer a spinal cord injury face a lifetime as a wheelchair user, as well as loss of bladder and bowel control and sexual function. Injuries impact on relationships with partners, family and friends, work and social life.
Spinal Research is focused on finding treatments to overcome paralysis, which could completely change the future prospects of people with spinal cord injury and make recovery possible.
Research is advancing rapidly and there are very real prospects that in the near future patients will be able to recover movement, sensation and independence.
By making a gift to Spinal Research in your will, you can help to ensure that this vital research will continue.
