"Thanks to the Reeve Foundation Peer & Family Support Program. I feel that my family and I will not stand alone in this new journey of rebuilding my life."

"Having a peer mentor has meant a lot to me as I have felt alone in a community of people without disabilities. No one understands what I am going through better than a peer mentor. I am excited about my future."
- Tom, peer living with paralysis

"Thank you so much for your advice and kind words. We have no way of really helping Eric (SCI) and Beth... not the way you all can. I know you will provide Eric and Beth with great contacts to help them through this. You already gave us greater peace of mind. Thank you so much."

"Sue is a life line for me while I adjust to life in a wheelchair. We have never met in person, but that hasn't stopped us from sharing our lives. She is playing a huge role in my ability to establish a satisfying life."

"I was at my wits-end since my husband died. He had been our son's primary caregiver and I don't do it as well. My son is angry at my husband for dying, and is angry at me, too. I don't even feel like his mother anymore... just a caregiver. We are losing our relationship! Your words of support and encouragement were so reassuring, and suggestion to have a caregiver mentor for me was like a ray of sunshine. Thank you. I feel like I can face another day, and the day after that."

"A peer was at his wits-end handling his bladder management, and could no longer handle urinary leaks. He had returned home from the hospital basically unprepared deal with his choices in catheters. We worked together to explore different options and products to find the right bladder management method. He has since discovered what works for him, resulting in no more awkward and humiliating urinary accidents."
- Steve Kenny, living with paralysis, Reeve certified peer mentor

"A peer, a commercial diver who was paralyzed from the "bends", was having difficulty figuring out the right process and products to restart his sex life with his longtime partner. I shared some of my experiences, offered some suggestions to share with his urologists, and he finally succeeded where he had previously had trouble. I have found nothing as rewarding as the smile on his face the next day, and his fun remark to me checking the look on his partners face when she arrived later."
