Megan Needs Your Help
On July 4, 2015, Megan sustained a spinal cord injury at the C6/C7 level. She can move her arms, but her hands are weak and her legs are paralyzed.

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.
