Spinal Cord Injury: Life

Walking With Anthony is a nonprofit 501(3)c on a mission to forever change the recovery outcome of spinal cord injury, currently perceived as unchangeable.

Every 49 minutes, one out of 50 healthy people will suffer a life altering spinal cord injury and be sent home to atrophy in a wheelchair as though rehabilitation isn't possible. To date, my son Anthony, who suffered a C5/C6 spinal cord injury, can do 31 squats unassisted and can bench 195 lbs.  Yet, insurance does not cover rehabilitation for this horrific injury. Our family has the resources to get Anthony the necessary rehab that he needs to continue his recovery. Most are not so fortunate.  

 

Walking With Anthony was founded to help those with SCI who are less fortunate get their lives back.  Whether it's rehabilitation, a wheelchair or an equipped van, we help as many people as we can.  How do we put a price on someone's quality of life?   

 

A spinal cord injury is not selective.  It can happen anytime to anyone. In a split second, a bachelorette party, a day at the beach, a Sunday drive ...interrupted life as our heroes knew it.  There are countless others.  They need us also.  Help us help as many people as possible. Help us change the perception that spinal cord injury is a sentence to atrophy in a wheelchair. Thank you so much for your donation.  If you find that this means as much to you as it does to us, please fundraise for us and with us. God bless you.
