Help us break down conventional barriers and inspire the paralyzed to experience the world.
Becoming paralyzed is a devastating life event that can happen to anyone. Here at Determined2Heal, we are dedicated to making the lives of the nearly 1.2 million people living with a spinal cord injury in the US as rich and fulfilling as possible.
We aim to do this by bringing rehabilitative adventures into their lives and by offering our game-changing mentoring platform with over 8,500 spinal cord injury videos.
Here is where you come in.
Too many people who become newly paralyzed feel either physically or mentally alone, because no local organizations or mentors exist in their geographical area to show them what’s possible. Without the right support, reentering the world post injury is quite scary.
SPINALpedia.com changes all of this! Our thousands of community members and videos are all searchable based on physical functionality. No matter a person’s ability, there is always either something to learn or someone to reach out to.
This holiday season we're raising funds to continue our life-changing rehabilitative adventures, like adaptive scuba diving, sailing & indoor skydiving. Throughout 2017 Determined2Heal sponsored, organized and/or recruited 110 participants to experience one of nine adaptive sports and/or adventures. With your help we look forward to continue and to expand this program in 2018.
We're also need your help to fund our SPINALpedia.com expenses and to pay the salary of our executive director Tiffiny Carlson (a C5-6 quadriplegic).
Our mission is to change the way the world sees and thinks about paralysis. Too many lose hope after a paralyzing injury and that needs to end.
Thanks to people like you, we will continue helping and empowering those in need. As a nonprofit, we survive on the generosity of our donors.
Thank you for your support and Happy Holidays!
