A Letter To The Late Dana Reeve From Karen LeGrand

From The Mighty, originally published on March 21, 2016: A Letter From Karen LeGrand to the late Dana Reeve:

Dear Dana,

e509a2e12da3d637acdba6f2bb461413-huge-erI get it. I truly get it.

I never had the pleasure of meeting you before your passing 10 years ago this month, but if you came back for one day, I would tell you that I understand what you went through. We both figured out how to move forward when our lives took an abrupt turn. Similar to your experience with your husband Christopher Reeve, my son, former Rutgers football player, Eric LeGrand, sustained a spinal cord injury that left him paralyzed from the neck down more than five years ago. When faced with this devastating injury, you and I didn’t spend time thinking about it. We mustered all of our strength and energy and quickly transitioned into our new role as caregivers.
