Samuel is a local boy who had all the traits of any nine year old, he enjoyed playing, socializing and being active. Unfortunately, Samuel was paralysed almost overnight by a rare condition - Transverse Myelitis.
In November of 2015, Samuel was looking forward to his upcoming school and amateur swimming club championships. He attended his school disco on the last Friday of the month – running around, having fun with his mates. He was, for all purposes, a bright intelligent nine year old boy, fit, healthy, energetic and with the world at his feet. - Campaign 4 Samuel
This condition interrupts the Spinal Cords ability to send and receive messages throughout the body, making the quality of life for those affected significantly lower than those able-bodied.
