Skydiving for Spinal Research

By on July 21, 2010

The Paraplegic Princess, Leah Caprice, is a stripper and model who lost the use of both her legs after an accident in 2008. Despite being unable to use her legs, or feel anything below her waist, Leah is going to mark the anniversary of her accident by jumping out of a plane to raise money for Spinal Research. Yes, that’s right – she is going to jump out of a plane…

Paraplegic Princess_002Spinal Research is is the UK’s leading charity funding medical research around the world to develop reliable treatments for paralysis caused by a broken back or neck. Every year more than 800 people in the UK and Ireland are paralysed following an injury to their spinal cord. Spinal Research raises money to fund research into clinical treatments as well as vital basic science research. Thanks to such pioneering research, paralysis can now be treated and we stand on the brink of applying therapies that will restore movement and feeling and transform the lives of paralysed people.

Being paraplegic has not defeated Leah’s spirit – these photos were taken after the accident. Let’s help Leah! This is really a great cause. Give what you can and help to find an effective treatment for paralysis. Do it now – donate here http://www.justgiving.com/paraprincess
