WE IMPROVE THE LIVES OF PEOPLE WITH SPINAL CORD INJURIES
We're here to provide essential medical equipment for people with spinal cord injuries who cannot afford these necessities.
Information about spinal cord injuries isn't always easy to find. So we've compiled a list of helpful resources that Amy recommends.
TWO GREAT WAYS TO HELP
Our various programs and initiatives depend on your generosity.
Here are two easy ways you can get involved right now.
Matt was born with Achondroplasia, which is a form of dwarfism. When he was a young man, his condition caused major spinal stenosis, which pinched off his spinal cord.
He has been unable to get himself to physical therapy, work or even to get groceries because he didn’t have any hand controls. He was sent to Amy’s Army by a friend, and asked us to help him find a way to get around.
Amy’s Army looked at several options to help him, and decided that a set of portable hand controls would change/enhance his life so much. We purchased a set of hand controls that he can put in any car, and take anywhere with him.
Matt is now able to get to physical therapy, and he is getting stronger every day. Amy’s Army is so happy that this gift has gone to Matt. We are excited to see his progress, and will update everyone as his position changes.
I have the best friends in the world. Thank you all for the crazy surprise ( my first EVAH) and the fun night. You all rock...and I roll!
