Christopher and Dana Reeve Blog, November 10, 2017: “Atrophy vs. Ass-trophy”

We began to realize how much our kids listen to our conversations when our son mentioned to Geoff he was worried about getting a pressure sore on his bum from new pants with buttons on the pockets.

You watched me walk in with three young children; we had a soccer game later that evening which meant the best I could do after work was to drive to the town where our game would be played to first have dinner. A third one was thrown in the mix as his mom, a hard-working… Continue reading Christopher and Dana Reeve blog, October 31, 2017: Dear Well Meaning Couple at the Restaurant…

Christopher and Dana Reeve Blog for September 29, 2017: “September is Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month”

Christopher and Dana Reeve Blog, Sept. 8, 2017: “Being Krill-ed”

Geoff Krill isn’t exactly an ambulance chaser; however, he LOVES meeting people whose lives have been forever changed by spinal cord injury. Recently, while at a cycling event, our friend and adaptive coach MiKayla Briere watched him working with Ryan St. Lawrence, a downhill mountain biker who sustained his SCI just last summer. She smiled… Continue reading Christopher and Dana Reeve Blog, Sept. 8, 2017: “Being Krill-ed”
