Lilly Lavner's Fundraiser:

IN LOVING MEMORY OF BILL LAVNER 2016

THE STORY:

When I was 16 years old, my father, William "Bill" Lavner, became a quadriplegic with a C4 spinal injury. During the first few months following his injury he was deeply depressed and wondered how he could ever hope to continue living a full and meaningful life. The hospitals and rehabilitation centers where my father stayed during his initial recovery period connected him with outstanding individuals and inspiring groups that helped him think positively and realistically about how he could make adjustments to his new lifestyle. The people at the Alan T Brown Foundation to Cure Paralysis, Greater NY Chapter of the National Spinal Cord Injury Association, Wheeling Forward, and the many individuals he met through these organizations, were instrumental in helping my father and our family through their mentorship and companionship. After years of receiving support, my father took on active and involved roles that enabled him to provide assistance to others. My father joined the board of the Alan T Brown Foundation, and also served by sharing his experiences with recently injured individuals and their families. Although my father passed away in Fall 2012, I strongly believe in and wish to continue supporting the work of these SCI non-profits that do great work to help those with spinal cord injuries increase their independence and experience a higher quality of life. Starting in 2015, I began running this race as one of many ways that I continue to celebrate and honor my father's memory. Please consider joining the event or making a donation. Help bring awareness to spinal cord injury and paralysis, and the challenges faced by those affected.
