Support Tom Elphick's Recovery

Tom Elphick, 21 originally from Sydney, Australia is an aspiring dancer and student at Codarts University in Rotterdam, Nederland. On Thursday the 6th of May Tom was victim to a tragic accident in Lisbon Portugal that left him paralyzed from the neck down and in grave need for surgery. He sustained a critical injury to his cervical vertebrae and damage to the surrounding nerves and underwent a long surgery two days post trauma to correct the spine and insert supporting plates. Although he is still paralyzed Tom, his family, and friends remain optimistic that he will move again but we need your help!

We want to provide Tom with the best medical and rehabilitation programs Portugal has to offer as well as alleviate the pressure on his parents who have come from Australia. Please help Tom move again by donating to his cause (click on the donate button to the right). 100% of the proceeds go to helping Tom cover his medical and rehabilitation expenses. On behalf of Tom, his family, and many friends we thank you for helping Tom get back on his feet.
