Imagine not being able to hear the world around you. There’s no more music. Only silence when your loved one speaks to you.
Imagine not being able to see anymore. No more witnessing a sunrise or seeing a movie, or the hands and face of a loved one in front of you.
Imagine you lost feeling or movement of your own body. How would your world change? What is now lost to you without your vital senses - of hearing, of sight, or of movement and touch?
Now imagine a world where there is no more permanent disability of the senses. There’s no longer permanent loss of your hearing or of your sight. A world where an injury or disease of the nervous system can be repaired so that you can again move your body and feel the sense of touch.
“Hearing, sight, touch and body movement are fundamentally important. The loss of any one of these senses becomes critical. Restoring these senses should be a priority.”
Professor Graeme Clark AC
The Graeme Clark Foundation supports such possibilities to restore the senses for children and adults who cannot hear, or cannot see, or who cannot function well to move or feel sensation after a spinal cord injury or neurological disease. We hold the vision of a world where there’s no more permanent disability.
