Spinal Cord Injuries

Just a few things I've come across during our Spinal Cord Injury journey... 
This answers that question, and these: Where is the spinal cord and the vertebrae? What are the effects of SCI? IS there a cure? Do people with SCI get better? Does everyone who sustains SCI use a wheelchair? Do people with SCI die sooner?
A pretty fascinating infographic.
I've met so, so many people who are paralyzed because they dove into water.  It's scary and sad.
This place changed our lives for the better. I can't imagine where we'd be without these wonderful people who... just get it.  This is where Jimmy was for many months following his accident in 2011. I even lived on campus for a month myself.
This Facebook page is one I follow regularly. The pictures are inspiring as well as the stories. It's a wonderful organization.
This is an organization I was just turned onto from a fellow news peer. In late July, they announced they got the green light from the FDA to to begin a clinical trial to evaluate the safety of transplanting human Schwann cells to treat patients with recent spinal cord injuries.
These guys have trademarked the Wheelchair Heart symbol. We put a decal on our VW van.  I want to get the "That's How I Roll" shirt with the logo on it.

A wonderful blog about a gal married to a quad. She has published an eBook and was featured on VH1's "I'm Married To A..."
This movie inspired me and hugged me like nothing else. I wrote about it HERE.
