My friend received a spinal cord injury and I knew nothing about a spinal cord or an injury to it. Spinal Cord Injury Network International took time to answer my questions and explain about spinal cord injury. The organization helped me understand about the adjustment people have to make in their lives after receiving an injury to the spine.
