'Doris noticed some dead pansies in our son's flower bed on her way to retrieve the morning paper. She stopped to "deadhead" the pansies and, as she bent over from the waist, she fell on her chin and lay there paralyzed from the shoulders down. This book is Doris' message to individuals with osteoarthritis or any brittle cervical spine condition. Never put yourself in a position to fall on your face. In 2013 the Christopher & Dana Reeves Foundation research findings reported nearly 1 in 50 people living with paralysis - approximately 5.4 million people in the USA. That number was approximately 40% higher than previous estimates. This book documents experiences with institutions and care providers essential to overcoming a spinal cord injury. This book illustrates the power of Physical Therapy treatment for maximum recovery allowed by the extent of the spinal cord injury to recovery from debilitating illnesses typical of spinal cord injury patients over time. This book should be an encouragement to all facing life changing events that seem insurmountable.'
