Join this group:
This is a meeting place for the Spinal Cord Injured and their caregivers, to share information and to support others.
Their aim is to empower people with Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI) to live positive and successful lives, where existence of an SCI becomes irrelevant!
They truly believe that disability is a state of mind, not of body. A person is disabled only if he thinks s/he is. They strive to make people with impairments into taxpayers!
