“I am a young person with a complete spinal chord injury as a result of a rugby accident in 1996 in Australia. Hearts and Balls is far more than a charity to me. It is a group of caring human beings who fully understand the challenges that spinally-injured people face.

It would be easy for Hearts and Balls to overlook someone who sustained a rugby injury in Australia, but they cared enough about rugby and its players to make it their business. Its contribution to buying me a power wheelchair has been invaluable to me, my wife, and our young twin sons.”
