A spinal cord injury can be a traumatic event and definitely life-changing! There are feelings of loss, anger, sadness, isolation, and hopelessness…but knowing that others have gone through the same experience and succeeded at living full lives again is a big relief.

People with SCI/D can live full lives and motivate others to do the same by sharing their stories. BACKBONES believes that storytelling brings us together, motivates those around us and changes perceptions of what the disability experience is really like!

Share your story with others and, more importantly, listen to theirs!
