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.


Please make a tax deductible donation today and support Conor in his journey.

    I am making this donation on behalf of my friend, David Green, who is celebrating his 60th birthday today (Happy Birthday, David!). Like Connor, David has displayed great courage over the years, jumping out of planes and parachuting, bungee jumping off bridges and the like (but not to give Connor any dangerous ideas!). Happy Birthday to David and best wishes to Connor - you both show amazing courage and determination in your lives and enrich the lives of everyone around you so much. Roberta xo
