Whenever a person or family is suddenly confronted with the world-changing experience of a catastrophic spinal cord injury or brain injury, there are a host of questions but seemingly few solid answers. These questions involve a wide spectrum of issues: health, rehabilitation, hope for recovery, current research, financial, legal, and the list goes on.
Brain and Spinal Cord was created and sponsored by the Swope Rodante law firm as a knowledge-base for brain injury and spinal cord injury survivors to help answer these kinds of questions. While the site is relatively new, we hope to eventually have answers and information about all of the most frequently asked questions and important issues facing survivors. Our daily blog will have information about news and developments. We will have in-depth articles, links to resources, and commentary on developments in research and recovery. We are also building a video library that will have basic information that survivors need to know about. Our library will also have videos of other brain injury and spinal cord injury survivors and their families who will talk about lessons they have learned and tell their personal stories about hope and coping. If requested, we will also try to provide additional help and information.
Our goal in creating BrainandSpinalCord.org is for the website to be the most reliable, timely and complete resource on the internet for brain injury and spinal cord injury survivors. Our hope is that this site will become relied upon as a trustworthy resource for the community and for those who are searching for information.
