This Christmas, another child will find out that they have a spinal cord injury.
Sam’s life was turned upside down after a spinal infarction during a school rugby match left him with minimal feeling and movement in his legs. He was only 9 years old. Since then, we’ve supported Sam to settle back at school. He also recently went on one of our multi-activity courses, trying out abseiling and archery, while making new friends with other young people with a spinal cord injury. Sam’s mum Ali said of the course:
‘‘A massive thank you from all the family. Samuel loved it and the girls and I really got loads out of it. Thanks for the opportunity and for all you do for our family and families like us. You are amazing!’’
