Be Counted! (even if you can’t stand up)


Check this out!  The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation developed a website to count all the people living with paralysis and individuals who care about them.  Advocacy may influence policy but numbers are the agent of change.  You can visit the website here to add your name and location to the list.  If you look up Ashleigh in Phoenix, you’ll find me!

Sign up and be counted. Let the world know how big our community really is and how important it is to pay attention to us!  Everyone should do this.

    Reblogged this on My Unplanned Life… and commented:
    This is such an amazing web site…one that is hard to ignore. Even if you aren’t able to place yourself or a love one on the map, please take the time to look at the sheer volume of those who are in need of help. Imagine waking up tomorrow and not being able to walk, get yourself ready for work or drive to an appointment. Imagine living with pain 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 364 days a year. It’s time to make a difference. Organizations such as the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, The Campaign to Cure Paralysis and SCINet are doing all they can to help increase awareness; however, it’s not enough. Please spread the word by sharing the below information. Thank you for your support.
