Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation Blog, “On this International Day for Persons With Disabilities,” December 7, 2018

December 3 was the International Day for Persons with Disabilities, and the theme this year is empowering persons with disabilities and ensuring inclusiveness and equality. Two emails, both connected through the Reeve Foundation and sent the very same day, empowered me. One was a message from Anna Chamberlain, who coordinates our blogging, informing us of… Continue reading Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation Blog, “On this International Day for Persons With Disabilities,” December 7, 2018

Christopher and Dana Reeve Blog: “Thanksgiving for a Little Process Called In Vitro Fertilization,” November 25, 2018

This Thanksgiving, I continue to believe in the Trinity which includes God, Mother Nature, and the Miracle of Science. November 22 is Thanksgiving and November 25 is the National Awareness Day for Embryo Adoption– both days inexorably linked for our family. We remain indebted (and, actually, in debt) to our fertility clinic for bringing the… Continue reading Christopher and Dana Reeve Blog: “Thanksgiving for a Little Process Called In Vitro Fertilization,” November 25, 2018

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. We are lucky every day because both sets of our children’s grandparents, our own moms, and dads, chose to retire… Continue reading Christopher and Dana Reeve Blog: Grateful for Parents as Caregivers, November 9, 2018

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
