There are approximately 17,000 new cases of Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) each year in the United States.
August of 2006, John underwent corrective surgery. Upon awaking from surgery, he had no feeling from his chest down. The rods were removed with the hope that this would relieve any pressure, but that was not the case. At the age of 12, John became a spinal cord injury (SCI) survivor.
Nothing could preapre John and his family for this drastic change as they began their journey after SCI. This lead to the creation of The John Fair III Spinal Cord Injury Foundation.
As a mother, you can never be too prepared, but nothing could have prepared Cassandra Fair for the news that her 12 year old son would never walk again. No one looks at their child running and playing, dancing and singing, and thinks tomorrow they may not walk again. After learning this tragic news, Cassie and her family were left with tons of questions and no answers. Where do we go from here? How can we help our son? How do we pay these medical bills?
These were the questions burning through their minds. This is the inspiration behind The John Fair III Spinal Cord Injury Foundation. So when SCI survivors and their families are left with questions, there is help and support! Together we can MOVE SOMEONE WHO CAN'T!
