Join me in my efforts to support The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation!

5 years ago (July 6 2008) I suffered a sudden and rare spinal cord injury that forced me into emergency surgery. Before surgery I was told what most spinal cord sufferers hear and that is the prospects for recovery are not good. The doctor told me the surgery to be performed was not going to be corrective and the goal was to stop further paralysis. This was shocking news considering I needed to be carried out of my house and wheeled into the hospital. I could not walk and just told not to expect to when surgery was over.

Unlike the vast majority of people who suffer these terrible injuries, I woke up from surgery and could feel my toes and move my legs. Over the next month my recovery was nothing short of miraculous and today you would not know it ever happened unless I told you.

So now you know and I’m hoping you will join me in my effort to raise funds towards the cure of this terrible handicap so many suffer with little hope. My plan is to run the Louisville Ironman on August 25th, 2013 to give others hope of recovery. If I did it, surely anyone can.

Currently in the United States, there are nearly 1 in 50 people living with paralysis -- approximately 6 million people. That's the same number of people as the combined populations of Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. And that number is nearly 33% higher than previous estimates showed.

Great strides have been made; people are living healthier, vibrant lives, and some are walking again thanks to the work of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation. The Reeve Foundation is committed to finding treatments and cures for spinal cord injuries. To achieve this goal, the Foundation funds some of the most brilliant minds in neuroscience – researchers who are poised to deliver the answers that will change the lives of spinal cord injured people worldwide.

In addition to whatever amount you are generous enough to pledge, please know I will match it dollar for dollar. My goal is to raise $5,000.00.
