About Wings for Life
Every eight hours someone in the UK sustains a spinal cord injury and most become wheelchair users as a result. Spinal cord injury affects people of all ages and backgrounds and is most commonly caused through road traffic accidents, falls, illness or sports. Spinal cord injury happens in a moment, but the impact lasts a lifetime. After an injury most people live through months if not years of rehabilitative therapy. There is currently no medical treatment available to repair the injured spinal cord.
Wings for Life fund world class scientific research and clinical trials around the globe aimed at finding a cure for spinal cord injury. Since being founded 170 spinal cord research projects have been funded at the world’s most well-respected institutes and a number of vital breakthroughs has been made.
Wings for Life’s research focuses on how to minimize damage, stimulate repair and restore function after an injury to the spinal cord has been sustained. The developments so far provide strong hope that treatment options are closer than they have ever been. However, intensive research work is needed before a breakthrough in human medicine can be achieved.
When you support Wings for Life, 100% of the money you donate will go to directly to spinal cord injury research as the charity’s founders generously cover all of the administrative costs.
