I am the peer mentor coordinator at Schwab rehab. We offer our friendship, advice, we have, there are so many roles that we play. It is just better for someone that’s freshly acquired a spinal cord injury to visibly be able to see someone that has been doing it for awhile. It really helps their morale; it helps them to see that you need to stay healthy. It’s easier for someone with a fresh injury to listen to what I’m saying, even though the doctors are professionals. Sometimes you have that little thought in the back of your head, “well I don’t know,” but it’s just easier to take from somebody that’s in your own shoes.
