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

Soccer is the sport that witnessed me falling in love with my husband. Perhaps the most romantic of the seasons, that first autumn gave me the best version of myself in the time of year I love most with the person I was meant to marry. Coaching high school soccer in a small town doesn’t… Continue reading Christopher and Dana Reeve Blog: “Goalkeeping Life Skills,” October 23, 2018

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 Reeve Foundation Blog: “Spinal Cord Injury: a Lifetime Contract,” September 25, 2018

As September is Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month, we would be remiss in not honoring those with spinal cord injuries who came before us, whose contributions to healing and thriving despite injury have made life a little easier for our families living in the present. A complete spinal cord injury is a contract for life.… Continue reading Christopher Reeve Foundation Blog: “Spinal Cord Injury: a Lifetime Contract,” September 25, 2018

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

Shoulders have been on my mind a lot lately, and by shoulders, I mean both the body part attaching the arm to the torso and the sides of roadways where people might walk or cycle. 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

Christopher and Dana Reeve Blog: “Measuring the Quality of One’s Life,” August 14, 2018

Just when I wonder, “What should I write about this week?”, an experience challenges me, or a conversation happens, or in this case, a photo slips from a pile of papers. This was taken a few years ago at my Aunt Sue and Uncle Karl’s house in Maine. My Uncle Karl is a resourceful man… Continue reading Christopher and Dana Reeve Blog: “Measuring the Quality of One’s Life,” August 14, 2018

Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation Blog: “An Off Camber Kind of Life,” July 23, 2018

We LOVE the water in the summertime, and the rivers, lakes, and mountains of Northern New Hampshire literally provide us with everything we need for swimming, exploring, climbing, problem-solving, fishing, catching crawfish, building cairns or sandcastles– the essential skills of childhood summers spent in the outdoors. The thing is Daddy does not enjoy the water… Continue reading Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation Blog: “An Off Camber Kind of Life,” July 23, 2018

Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation Blog: “Asking for Help is Hard,” July 3, 2018

Recently, I set my grill on fire. Not like a huge fire where the fire department had to be called but big enough that I needed to employ my fire extinguisher, along with traumatizing our children. My parents had been over for dinner, so my dad felt compelled to remind me, his 43-year daughter, of… Continue reading Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation Blog: “Asking for Help is Hard,” July 3, 2018
