"To be in the twenty-first century and not have found a cure for spinal cord injury is painfully astonishing." - Sam Bloom
To Sam, the future is the cure and she is committed to being a driving force behind it so that others will not have to endure what she and her family have.
As well as Sam, up to 19,000 Australians and tens of millions of people around the world live with a spinal cord injury.
To have a spinal cord injury means so much more than just losing your ability to walk – it is reduced life expectancy, constant pain, mental health challenges, and the list goes on.
Sam works as an ambassador with two, leading spinal cord injury research organisations to help raise funds and awareness for the global quest for the cure.
SpinalCure Australia has one, singular focus – to find a cure for spinal cord injury. Sam helps raise funds and awareness for the cause, as well as donating a percentage of royalties from Australian sales of Penguin Bloom.
