A glimpse into living with spinal cord injury

September is spinal cord injury (SCI) awareness month. Living with SCI presents additional challenges, but we won’t let that stop us from enjoying life. SCI does not only affect a particular race, gender or socio-economic status; it can affect anyone at any stage of their life.

To celebrate SCI Awareness Month, New Mobility Magazine featured four wheelers in their current issue. These folks are of different walks of life (or wheels of life), but are still living life with ambition and purpose. Read their stories at http://www.newmobility.com/2015/09/life-of-four-wheelers/.

Plus, if you haven’t seen the mini documentary about me created by MUSC, you can view it at https://tuesdaytalkwithalex.wordpress.com/2015/08/18/a-day-in-the-life-of-alex-jackson/.

About Tuesday Talk With Alex

Born in Charleston, SC, I was injured in a motor vehicle accident when I was nine months old. I acquired a C5-C6 spinal cord injury. I'm now 30 years old and I do not let my disability deter me from acheiving my goals and enjoying life. I will be sharing my experience of living with a spinal cord injury.
