SUPPORTING LIONS AUSTRALIA SPINAL CORD FELLOWSHIP

The Lions Club of New Norfolk has recently made a donation to the Lions Australia Spinal Cord Fellowship, thanks to the generous support of our community.

The purpose of the Fellowship is to support StepAhead Australia which was previously known as the Spinal Cord Society of Australia.

StepAhead is a research organisation dedicated to funding the discovery and development of new therapies for people who have suffered a traumatic spinal cord injury or who live with chronic neurological disorders.

The Lions Australia Spinal Cord Fellowship enables Australian researchers to study the latest treatments for spinal cord injury both within Australia and the USA. The knowledge and experience gained is then made available to the Australian community.

A primary research focus is the development of ways to promote the formation of new neural circuits (“neuro-plasticity”) within both the brain and spinal cord that can support recovery of neurological functions. In the vast majority of spinal cord injuries there are surviving neural circuits which may be stimulated to form new circuits.

Importantly, neuro-plasticity based treatments will also be applicable to other chronic neurological disorders such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, dementia, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and multiple sclerosis (MS),

Around 15,000 Australians live with a spinal cord injury and between 300 and 400 new cases are recorded each year. Eighty-four percent of people with spinal cord injuries are men.

A common misconception is that sports activities cause the majority of spinal cord injuries. However, studies show that the two leading causes are motor vehicle accidents, most frequently in the 15-24 year age group, and falls in people over 65 years of age.

Australia unfortunately has one of the highest rates of spinal cord injury per capita in the developed world. Despite advances in rehabilitative medicine, the quality of life for patients is poor. At present there are no clinically approved treatments that can promote significant recovery of spinal function. However, StepAhead Australia believes that is all about to change.

We love Christmas here at the Friendliest Market in Tasmania, and as a Mother of three young boys I know the importance of doing anything we can do to make this Christmas as joyful as possible given the challenging year 2020 has been. I am thrilled to announce that on December 19 at our Merry Little Market Christmas Event, the New Norfolk Fire Brigade will be in attendance and would greatly appreciate wrapped lolly donations for their Christmas Eve Santa Run! The crew do such an amazing job bringing smiles to the faces of many as they make their way through the streets and spread Christmas Cheer throughout our community!
