Sacramento Spinal Foundation's goal is to make the road to recovery easier for individuals with SCI. We stay updated on the latest news, advancements, and programs that can have an impact on someone with a SCI. We know that sometimes a simple item or service will enable someone to live a more functional independent life, but financial strains keep it out of reach. SSF helps bridge that gap. We pair individuals with supporters who can help meet their needs. We have fundraisers where we team up with an individual to raise funds for specific items or services, or you can create your own crowdfund. And we provide financial assistance through our Quality of Life Grant program.
According to a study initiated by the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, there are nearly 1 in 50 people living with paralysis -- approximately 6 million people. That's the same number of people as the combined populations of Sacramento, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. And that number is nearly 33% higher than previous estimates showed.
It means that we all know someone -- a brother, sister, friend, neighbor, or colleague -- living with paralysis.
Sacramento Spinal Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the life of individuals with spinal cord injuries and their families in Sacramento and Yolo County. Please support us by making a donation today, and help provide resources to so many people in need.
