“Eleven years ago I suffered a spinal cord injury. In the blink of an eye my life changed forever.”

“Life with a spinal cord injury isn’t easy. There are so many complications you could never imagine.

“With your support we’ll be talking about life-changing research not life-changing injury.”

– Yvie Eglinton (SAHMRI ambassador living with spinal cord injury)
