August 24, 2022

Summer is a time of traveling, relaxation and recreational activity. It is also a time for increased Spinal Cord Injury: boating, diving, swimming and motor vehicle accidents. 80% of SCI accidents happen when we are just living our lives, recreating, vacationing and on sports fields. Let’s take a pause to send our love to those whose lives have been impacted by life-changing SCI. This special episode raises awareness for SCI tragedies in the hope of preventing future injury. Join Louise to learn about the cutting edge work of the Blink of an Eye 501(c)(3) non-profit, and its parent group, I C THAT, in their advocacy to help families and medical teams in the critical first 30 days of SCI injury. This episode also pauses for the opportunity to take a moment to acknowledge any unresolved trauma in your life and to consider ways to begin or continue your healing journey. There is no specific timeline for trauma healing, but there is always now for a new beginning. You are never broken; you are always whole. We are all in this together.
