About the project

Conor was a talented 16 year old sportsman when his life changed forever. A scrum collapse caused a fracture dislocation and spinal cord injury at C4-C5, resulting in weakness and/or paralysis of the muscles in arms and legs as well as those required for breathing.


Conor’s injury is very serious. His youth, strength and determination have helped him to cope with the injury and will be critical for recovery and return to sport. But that will not be enough. The best management and optimal outcomes will require significant funding for equipment, therapy, and personal support.
