Worcester lock Michael Fatialofa has been moved to a specialist spinal injuries clinic after four weeks in hospital, the New Zealander's English Premiership club has said.
The 27-year-old former Auckland and Hurricanes player suffered a serious neck injury against Saracens on January 4, less than a minute after coming onto the field in the second half.
"Although Michael is making good progress his injuries leave him facing damaged function, feeling and control over his body and a long period of rehabilitation and recovery," Worcester said on their website.
"A fundraising campaign has been set up by the Rugby Players' Association's Restart charity and fully supported by Warriors which will provide for Michael's immediate needs and future costs and unforeseen expenses."
The club said discussions about major fundraising events were continuing.
