National Spinal Cord Injury Month

by kier September 1 2011 15:07
September has been named National Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month. At 180 Medical, we always spend time to help educate and provide peer mentoring for those who have experienced spinal cord injuries and their families. It's the reason Todd Brown started our company. He wanted to help others like him experience the products and service they deserved.

We'd like to take a moment to share a few great resources we've run into this month.

Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation
The Reeve Foundation is dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research, and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy.

A great list of events around the U.S. Search by state to find events in your area to get involved with.

FacingDisability.com is designed to provide videos and support for people with spinal cord injuries and the members of their families. Connecting with the life experiences of others who have been down the path ahead of you often helps people find their own strength and support.
