My name is Bill Cawley.  I am the Program Manager of the Reeve Foundation's national peer mentoring program (The Peer & Family Support program).

I was injured in 1992 and I know how you feel.  It can be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel but I assure it is there.
I wanted to let you know that we have over 250 certified mentors across the country that work with people living with paralysis as well as those that care for them.  Many of our mentors have been and are in relationships and they  are uniquely qualified to understand the challenges, your frustration and feelings.  They can also provide a perspective that only a person that has been where you are right now can provide.  

I encourage you to reach out to us- you can 
email me at  To learn more about the program you can view our web site by clicking  This is a free service and you can stop at any point.

Take care and good luck,
