Prospect Heights Woman Wins $1M Prize for Spinal Cord Injury Advocacy Work

Reveca Torres

When we interviewed our client Reveca Torres in 2015, she explained how she forged a path from navigating her new normal as a newly-injured teen to becoming the executive director of the spinal cord injury support community and nonprofit BACKBONES.

Along with an RN and a spine surgeon, Reveca is now the recipient of a $1 million Visionary Prize from the Craig H. Neilsen Foundation.

“Shocked and honored and grateful – all of those things, all of the feelings you can think of.”
