On the 22nd of May 2013, Michael Blyth suffered a horrific spinal injury whilst mountain biking in Sunbury, Victoria. This has resulted in paralysis from the abdomen down. He is currently undergoing extensive rehabilitation, in the Royal Talbot Rehab Centre, to learn how to adapt to life in a wheelchair. Apart from the devastation of the injury, the financial strain that is now burdening Mike and his family is only another battle. Mike is not financially covered by TAC nor the National Disability Insurance Scheme, which at present only includes the City of Greater Geelong, the Borough of Queenscliffe, the Surf Coast Shire and the Colac Otway Shire.
