Helpful Links
Push to Walk has assembled this list of resources to help answer the many questions that may be raised by individuals with spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, multiple sclerosis, and other neurological conditions.

In addition to the resources below, please visit the Family Corner page in which PTW co-founder Cynthia Templeton chronicles her journey of helping her son live a productive life after paralysis. It is both inspirational and practical.

For ideas related to fundraising, download our Fundraising Kit.
