Perry Cross Spinal Research Foundation
No one wants to experience life with paralysis.
Yet every day in Australia at least one person has their life changed forever in this devastating way. Day to day tasks and mobility become an extraordinary challenge.
Perry Cross is one such person whose life was unforeseeably and profoundly changed in an instant.
His approach to his paralysis has been inspirational, his aim for the foundation is to facilitate,
collaborate and initiate the connections and research required to find a cure for paralysis.
Sip for a Cure
We are so proud to have been able to partner with The Perry Cross Spinal Research Foundation on their SIP for a cure Fundraiser. My Jewellery Shop created the world’s most expensive straw in support of The Perry Cross Foundation SIP Week! Valued at over $8000 this stunning keepsake featured 350 white diamonds and was made in solid gold.
The bejewelled straw was the major prize for the fundraiser; SIP every drink you drink for a week through a straw to raise money to find a cure for spinal cord injury.
There were 153 sippers at final count, raising an impressive $84,729 towards spinal research.
