Thank you for all of your generous contributions. These funds have gone towards items not covered by medical insurance that are an essential part of my life:
– Standing feature on my power wheelchair
– FES bike at home
– Co-pays for physical therapy at Walk the Line to SCI Recovery
Again, thank you so much for your support!

Hello friends and family! Thank you for your incredible generosity. This I year used the funds for 2 important items that were denied by insurance after multiple appeals:
1) $7500 to pay off the balance for the standing function on my power wheelchair. I use the standing function most days to stretch out, put weight through my legs, and work out spasms.
2) $20,000 to purchase a functional electrical stimulation bike for home. I have been using the bike once a week through a drop-in program at U of M, but it is only available from 12:30-2:00, which was getting harder to work in with my work and PT schedule. It’s a hefty price tag and I’m committed to using it to prevent muscle atrophy and manage spasticity.
Spinal cord injuries are expensive, and I wouldn’t have access to these wonderful therapeutic modalities if it wasn’t for your support. Thank you so much.
