September is designated Spinal Cord Injury Awareness month. With all of the statistics passed around in September, it's startling to see how many lives are affected by SCIs. However, what's more startling is how much an individual life is changed by a spinal cord injury. This type of injury is so small, but leaves such a big impact.
We can all learn a lesson from being aware of SCIs: little things may have huge repercussions! No matter how the injury happened, a relatively tiny cut or bruise in the spinal cord counts for a lot.
So too does every step forward in recovery.
