Why do some spinal cord injury survivors succeed after injury and others spiral into inactivity and depression? Richard Holicky, himself a survivor, profiles 53 people and comes up with answers.
“I thought life was pretty much over.” Paul Herman
“I was afraid people wouldn’t see me for who I still was.” Cathy Green
“I didn’t need this to be a better person.” Susan Douglas
“I wasn’t sure I wanted to live ‘this way.'” Kevin Wolitzky
The above four people and 49 more just like them went on to find high levels of success and lead satisfying lives. Together they tell 53 stories of moving forward to meet all the challenges, fears, obstacles, and problems common to the life-altering circumstances after spinal cord injury, and doing it without benefit of wealth, large settlements or solid health coverage. Ranging in age from 21 to 67, disabled from three to 48 years they share 931 years of disability experience.
Roll Models is a valuable new resource for recently injured people and their families, and for nurses, therapists, psychologists and all other professionals who treat, work with and care for people with spinal cord injury.
Straight from the horse’s mouth, survivors explore their experiences with disability and answer many questions those in rehab are asking.
