Due to the generosity of our friends and sponsors, we have been able to continue to meet our goals for 2020.  We were able to help with two major individual grant requests (one for a van purchase and one for a special bath chair). In addition, we made our annual contributions to the spinal cord injury research centers at both UK and UL.
