A Guildford man paralysed in a Majorca swimming pool accident two years ago, hopes a new life is on the horizon after treatment he is soon to undergo. Jason Alner, of Park Barn, is scheduled to fly to Tijuana, Mexico, in June to begin a spinal regeneration treatment program that claims it will give him back some muscular control, and the possibility of independence. The fast-approaching date for Mr Alner comes after a year of campaigning by family, friends and businesses to raise the £50'000 required for the initial surgery and five-year supplementary treatment using blue shark embryo cells. The twenty-one year old was injured two years ago when he was pushed into a swimming pool in Majorca, an accident that broke his neck and left him paralysed from the chest down. “I will make a recovery,” he said, and it is this determination that supporters say have helped him to overcome his injury and look to the future. “It is very rare that you come across someone with such a mature attitude towards life - even with his life having been turned upside down,” said friend and key-campaigner Richard Knight.
