Giving independence is a new charity that is raising money to provide mobility equipment .There are over 21,000 people a year that obtain spinal cord injuries. They lose their ability to drive and get places on there on. I was shot years ago and was paralyzed so i know how important it is to be able to do things for yourself. But many paraplegics and quadriplegics cant afford the equipment. Mobility equipment can cost as much as $25,000. Hand controls,lifts no insurance companies will not pay anything to help.
