Sharing the Path to Independence after Spinal Cord Injury
500,000 people suffer a spinal cord injury every year. Most lose the ability to walk, control bowel & bladder, and engage with society. What they often gain is crushing social stigma, financial hardship, dependency, and depression. As internet access and smartphone usage abounds globally, life-saving knowledge can be only a 'click' away. Our mission is to share the path to independent living after spinal cord injury worldwide by recruiting peer mentors and therapists to film stories and technique demonstrations on the path to independence. We share these videos through an online course to newly injured patients, whom we then connect to peers in their own communities and empower to share their own experiences with the world.
