Welcome to the forum,

I hope you are able to get some feedback from our community members. The Reeve Foundation also offers a peer mentoring program, the Peer & Family Support Program (PFSP) is the Reeve Foundation’s national peer to peer mentoring program. The goal of PFSP is to provide critical emotional support, as well as, local and national information and resources to people living with paralysis, and their families and caregivers.

Through our online community there is also a helpful SCI Nurse forum (Nurse Linda) where you can post on topics related to spinal cord injury healthcare, please see the link below. Please note our community is free to join. http://www.spinalcordinjury-paralysis.org/forums/viewcategory/11775 
There is also a helpful nursing advice line offered through Craig Hospital, these nurses are available to answer non-emergent questions related to SCI. To reach a nurse call: 800-247-0257 or 303-789-8508.

Listed below is a link to our Paralysis Resource Guide.


Thanks for joining!
