Christopher and Dana Reeve Blog: Grateful for Parents as Caregivers, November 9, 2018

No matter how old we grow, our parents are still our parents, and they never stop wanting to take care of us even when we are 43 and 48 and have children of our own.

The first year they were really able to trick or treat, we were a family of… Continue reading Local Family of Skeleton Zombies Wishes You a Happy Halloween

Christopher and Dana Reeve Blog: “Goalkeeping Life Skills,” October 23, 2018

Soccer is the sport that witnessed me falling in love with my husband.

Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation: “To Be Daddy for a Day,” October 9, 2018

We had a difference of opinion while putting away the summer crap this weekend. Geoff wanted to be able to get into our shed, which is never going to happen given that it is our only storage space for outdoor equipment. The bikes and his hand cycle live outside the shed under tarps, and I… Continue reading Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation: “To Be Daddy for a Day,” October 9, 2018

Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation Blog: “So, There Was This Time I Was Wrong…” August 31, 2018

We vacationed on Martha’s Vineyard, an annual pilgrimage to spend time with my brother, his wife, and daughters. Easily the… Continue reading Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation Blog: “So, There Was This Time I Was Wrong…” August 31, 2018
