WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - April 11, 2016) - Paralyzed Veterans of America (Paralyzed Veterans) is proud to announce its new partnership with the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation (Reeve Foundation). The organizations will work together to provide both veterans and non-veterans living with paralysis with the best and most current resources available that help educate and raise awareness of specialized care and needs.

"Paralyzed Veterans of America and the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation are driven by a common cause: to make the world a better place for persons with spinal cord injury," said Sherman Gillums, Jr., acting executive director of Paralyzed Veterans. "This new partnership will allow us to build on our respective successes in spinal cord injury research, education, and awareness by unifying our efforts and expanding our impact to those we could not reach as separate entities. Christopher Reeve shared the same sense of fierce pride and self-determination as those paralyzed World War II veterans who started our organization, and we will carry forward their vision."
