“Nothing of any consequence happens unless people get behind an idea. It begins with an individual and they share the idea with more individuals…and eventually it becomes a movement.” ~Christopher Reeve
Christopher Reeve, the famed actor and philanthropist, passed away 11 years ago today. He became a quadriplegic after being thrown from a horse during an equestrian competition. Throughout the rest of his life, he required a wheelchair and a portable ventilator. He and his wife lobbied on behalf of individuals with spinal-cord injuries and for human embryonic stem cell research
Now, his legacy lives on through the memories and his esteemed Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation. The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation is dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research, and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy.
