July 26th Update: Rehab Costs

Thanks to all our friends for some great links to rehab programs for spinal cord injury patients. There are a few really good programs out there and a lot of great stories from those programs. I just watched a video on Project Walk's website where a girl with a C5/C6 injury just started taking her first steps after a little over a year in the program. While this is encouraging the program is somewhat costly and not covered by insurance. We're still looking for rehab options and the costs we're seeing seem to range anywhere from $35,000-$50,000 per year for a patient.

With this figure in mind we really need to start focusing our efforts on applying for grants. Your kindness is deeply felt and appreciated!
