ABOUT US & HISTORY, MISSION, PURPOSE, STAFF

Connecting with the life experiences of others often helps people find their own strength and support

Purpose

purposeFacingDisability.com was specifically created to connect families who suddenly have to deal with a spinal cord injury to people like them who have already been there.

It’s a first-of-its-kind Internet-based effort to collect life experiences surrounding spinal cord injuries and bring them to the world. It is a gateway to healthcare information from spinal cord injury experts, and the life experiences of more than 100 family members who are living with spinal cord injury every day.

The website contains more than 2,000 high-quality HD videos from interviews of family members answering real-life questions about how they cope, as well as interviews with top spinal cord injury experts on important medical subjects. It’s a video library that contains powerful evidence that successful, fulfilling lives are possible after spinal cord injury.

A spinal cord injury affects the entire family. FacingDisability.com is designed to help families cope effectively, resiliently and creatively with the changing realities of all their lives.

The website is funded by the Hill Foundation for Families Living with Disabilities, a 501(c) (3) non-profit, established by Robert Hill and Thea Flaum.
