Spinal Cord Injury Awareness 2012
Dear Family and Friends,I have been living with a Spinal Cord Injury for more than half my life and now more than ever, I am excited and HOPEFUL that someday people living with SCIÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s will stand and put one foot in front of another and walk. As you all know on July 22nd 2000, I dove into my above ground pool and suffered an Incomplete C-5 spinal cord injury. My family and I have faced many, difficult obstacles along my journey, but today we DREAM about the day I leave my wheelchair behind. As I've grown, matured and accepted the difficulties of living with SCI, I am excited about the amazing advances being made and I look forward to raising awareness for this unique and special subculture I belong to. Governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie has declared September as Spinal Cord Awareness month. For myself and countless others who live with SCI, I am now making it a top priority to raise awareness, money and bring SCI injuries to the forefront.For the last two months, I have been attending Push To Walk, a rehabilitation facility that specializes in SCI's in Riverdale, New Jersey. I am proud to be part of a successful, caring, dedicated group of people who help those inflicted with spinal cord injuries. Dr. Wise Young of Rutgers is also ready to begin clinical trials and is looking to put Ã¢â‚¬Å“New Jersey on the mapÃ¢â‚¬Â with regard to spinal cord injury research.With your help, I will be able to help Dr. Young and Push To Walk succeed in making dreams come true!
