This is where the staff of the Reeve Foundation is sharing up-to-the-minute information and putting some context around the news affecting the spinal cord injury and paralysis community. Not to mention insight into what's going on here at the Foundation.

Here is one of the most incredible videos I've seen to date.
Watch as 17-year-old, Patrick Ivison (also an a supporter of Life Rolls On) walks across the stage at his graduation with the help of a trainer. Living with a spinal cord injury since he was 14-months-old, Patrick made a promise three-years-ago he would walk to his diploma.
And that he did.
Good Morning America has the story.
On Tuesday night, in front of a cheering crowd of his classmates, teachers, friends and family members, Ivison had nothing to worry about.
Video of the ceremony shows Ivison standing up and, aided by his trainer and a custom-made walker, walking to accept his degree. Also walking next to Ivison was his service dog, Richochet, who received his own special award for helping his owner through high school.
Ivison, who graduated with a 4.0 grade-point average, plans to attend the University of Southern California's film school, his "dream school," in the fall. Don't be surprised to see another story about him in four years.
