Carla is encouraging her peers to sip through a straw for a week in the effort to raise funds for those who have suffered spinal cord injury, just like those who have suffered similar injuries do every day.
Carla has signed up to fundraiser this year to help the team of scientists working on the Gold Coast find a cure for paralysis.
Carla's partner suffered through a daunting period of life where he was diagnosed with cancer, the result of this was a spinal cord injury of his own.
Donations are tax deductible and would mean the world to this local family if we were at least one step closer to finding a cure for paralysis.
