Education, Support & Research

Your donation will fund research, opportunities to support the voice of those living with a disability and further educational efforts to help us better understand how every day people can overcome the challenges of a new disability while leading a successful and meaningful life. These activities will serve to help others who are struggling to overcome similar challenges and those of us who participate in their care.
