Spinal Cord Injury Ontario's Regional Services Coordinator was my advocate to retain my independence living in my apartment. She aided me with the process of filling out an application for funding of an Arjo lift device to assist with my showering and transferring in and out of bed from my wheelchair. The coordinator guided me through another application process for funding of repairs to my manual wheelchair. I believe if Spinal Cord Injury Ontario were to receive funds from Lerners it would be of great benefit to their research projects into spinal cord injuries. It would also assist with Peer support outreach and advocacy for accessible housing, community inclusion, employment and health care issues that Spinal Cord Injury Ontario works towards. My experience with Spinal Cord Injury Ontario and one of its coordinator's was a professional and positive one. Thank you.
