In 2002, the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation National Paralysis Resource Center (NPRC) opened its doors with the leadership and vision of Dana Reeve. Through the NPRC, we offer a free, comprehensive, national source of informational support for people living with paralysis and their caregivers. Our primary goals are to foster involvement in the community, promote health and improve quality of life for those living with or impacted by paralysis.About the National Paralysis Resource Center Resources for Living with Paralysis

My mission is to let the people speak for themselves and shop for wheelchairs themselves. It’s all about being independent and having the knowledge about what’s best for you and your quality of life.
We created the Peer & Family Support Program for people living with paralysis, as well as those who care for them, to come together for hope, support, and a way forward.
Pioneered by the late Dana Reeve, the Quality of Life Grants Program impacts and empowers people living with paralysis, their families and caregivers by providing grants to nonprofit organizations.
Our Military & Veterans Program provides resources, information, and advice for service men and women living with paralysis.
Wife & Caregiver of Christopher Reeve,
Founder of the NPRC
Dana Reeve was known for being a model caregiver, supporting Christopher Reeve and their family after he sustained a spinal cord injury in 1995. It was her vision, to provide resources for the entire support system, that led to the creation of the National Paralysis Resource Center (NPRC) and many other Reeve Foundation services.Read More
