This is such an amazing web site…one that is hard to ignore. Even if you aren’t able to place yourself or a love one on the map, please take the time to look at the sheer volume of those who are in need of help. Imagine waking up tomorrow and not being able to walk, get yourself ready for work or drive to an appointment. Imagine living with pain 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. It’s time to make a difference. Organizations such as the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, The Campaign to Cure Paralysis and SCINet are doing all they can to help increase awareness; however, it’s not enough. Please spread the word by sharing the below information. Thank you for your support.


Check this out!  The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation developed a website to count all the people living with paralysis and individuals who care about them.  Advocacy may influence policy but numbers are the agent of change.  You can visit the website here to add your name and location to the list.  If you look up Ashleigh in Phoenix, you’ll find me!

Sign up and be counted. Let the world know how big our community really is and how important it is to pay attention to us!  Everyone should do this.

About mswd

I am an individual living with a spinal cord injury. How the injury occurred, how I found out how severe my injury was and how my planned life suddenly became 'unplanned' is included in this blog. Also included is how the injury has tested my family and me. I believe you will discover it has been both a mentally and physically challenging ordeal and I learned a few lessons along the way. While I am still defining my life’s purpose since the injury, I have uncovered those who are injured, live with pain or have other obstacles to navigate are never able to escape. However, come with me as I explore ways to improve my life, learn to live with multiple neurological conditions, educate others and look for the silver lining. I believe with a little willpower, my caring family and God's guidance I will learn to forgive, hopefully forget how I was treated and dismissed by a doctor and uncover life's new purpose. I pray for painfree days and answers to questions that keep swirling through my mind. I also pray for a cure for neurological conditions and for the doctors to treat their patients with respect. Welcome to my journey. I would love to hear about yours!
