“As a quadriplegic, I understand the role that personal independence combined with community support plays in achieving a full, successful life after spinal-cord injury,” LASCI founder Bert Burns, a C6-7 quadriplegic, says. “The best part of this program is that we are encouraging people with SCI to get out and enjoy life while giving them a list of ways they can do so more easily. Having a place to start makes all the difference when moving beyond a life-changing injury.”
About Life After Spinal Cord Injury
Bert Burns became quadriplegic as a result of an automobile accident during his youth. His desire to make a positive difference in the lives of people with disabilities led him to create a free motivational program for peer support and rehabilitation groups called Life After Spinal Cord Injury. LASCI is sponsored by UroMed, [http://www.uromed.com] one of the largest urological supply companies in the country.
