Miley Cyrus Urges Fans to Donate to Help Paralyzed Australian Football Player

Miley Cyrus is requesting her fans to donate in a charity fund, set up for a paralyzed Australian sportsman who suffers from a serious spinal injury.

Beau Vernon was playing Australian rules football for his local Leongatha Football Club when he collided with another athlete, fracturing his neck and dislocating his vertebrae.

He was airlifted to a hospital in Melbourne, where he underwent a surgery to repair his two broken vertebrae, but the 23 year old has been left paralyzed.

Vernon's parents have been struggling to cover his medical fees and a fund was set up in his name to raise money to cover the costs, and now Cyrus, engaged to Aussie Liam Hemsworth, is using her fame to help drive up donations to the charity, Contactmusic reported.
