If you've got plans on Thursday I suggest you revise them!
Suzanne Edwards, was a keen and active 23 year old, but after falling from a roof terrace in Morocco, breaking her spine and extensively damaging her spinal chord, is now expected to spend the rest of her life in a wheel chair.
To raise money for her little sister Suzanne, and supporting spinal charity Aspire, stylist Pip Edwards, is hosting Fast Forward; a mighty musical extravaganza at Shoreditch club Cargo, featuring The Correspondents and other guests.
If your world were to cave and take a radical turn in an unwanted direction it might seem easiest to admit defeat and hide away but Suzanne has shown such strength of character, tackling her paralysis from just above the waist down with admirable tenacity and inspirational courage.
While the government are able to support her there are a multitude of costs not covered that are integral to helping Suzanne adapt to her new way of life, most notably a light wheelchair for easy mobility. Let's celebrate Suzanne's bravery and raise funds to help her continue life in as normal a way as possible with fun, music and dancing!
