OUR

FOUNDER’S STORY

The Never Give Up Foundation was created by Orianne Collins after her own experience through traumatic spinal injury, paralysis and the long path to recovery. Orianne founded the charity so that others, less fortunate than her, might receive the help they need through their early days of life changing treatment and guide them and their families on their own journeys towards a better quality of life.

 

In 2008, Orianne took part in the ‘Festival D’Arts Martiaux’ in Paris where, due to an accidental blow to the head, Orianne was left with a minor injury in her shoulder. After weeks of pain she eventually went to see a doctor who advised that she should have a very straight forward operation, what she thought would be a fairy simple procedure. A few hours after the operation she would wake to discover that her world had changed forever. Due to a surgical error Orianne was left paralyzed from the neck down, unable to move a single part of her body.

 

Over the next five years Orianne determined that she would walk again every day telling herself ‘Never give up, Never give up’. Over that time she went from being completely paralyzed to learning not only to walk again, but to eat again, write again and communicate with her children again.

The purpose of Never Give Up Foundation is to offer the possibility to people with disabilities to surpass themselves. A single bad day can have heavy consequences and make you doubt everything in your life.

AN ACCIDENT, A BIRTH DEFECT, A MEDICAL MISTAKE OR UNEXPECTED NEWS THAT CHANGES YOUR LIFE

Our association aims to provide help to:

  • Athletes with disabilities
  • Army veterans with disabilities
  • Adults & children with disabilities

THIS FOUNDATION HAS

THREE CHAPTERS

It’s for the people who just had a spinal cord injury, due to an accident or a medical error, like me in back in December 2014. I went for a simple surgery on my neck and I woke up paralyzed head down. When something that bad happened to you, your life is over and you can’t do anything about it. You can’t work anymore, you can’t take care of your loved ones. For a period of three months, until the insurance click in, we will help you to cover your essentials. We will take care of your invoices for your rent, electricity, phone, medical bills, children expenses…
We will advise you with the best rehabilitation program, including physical and mental therapies and we will help you to reintegrate social life.

It’s for all disabled people who have the desire to surpass themselves threw a sport event, a competition or an exploit. We are here to sponsors your adventures and help you to realize your dreams. Believe in yourself and the impossible will be possible.

It’s for the Veterans.
To help them to reintegrate social life after their years of services.

«Never Give Up is more then a sentence, it’s a mojo, a way of living.»
