Some stories of hope for this Christmas week.
After sustaining a spinal cord injury in July, Katelynn Bechaz walked out of the Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital.
Congratulations to Aldo Amenta not only for earning his Master’s degree post-SCI, but also for walking across the stage at the graduation ceremony.
Thank you to Paralyzed Veterans of America for their work to support veterans this Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Candice Caesar was injured while serving in the army in 1999. A walking quadriplegic, she has reached her goal of completing 100 half-marathons in the 50 different states before her 50th birthday. She did it within 5 years. “‘What kept me motivated and fueled me was my faith in God,’ she said. ‘I actually was on a quest to share my testimony with one person in every state and in the last few states I actually talked to five different people and that's what kept me going.’” Thank you to Candice for her service in the military and for sharing her testimony.
