Episode 25: Getting Back Up
Episode 25: Getting Back Up: It’s estimated that there are 67,000 service members and veterans in the United States who are living with spinal injuries. In the United States, the number is upwards of 1.2 million people, and worldwide the number is just staggering. What was once seen as a life-changing event is now, with the proper medical care, more of a lifestyle change. Jim “Jimmy” McCormack, a walking quadriplegic and director of Operation Regeneration, joins us today to discuss some of the changes that have occurred in just the past decade. If you are or know someone (veteran, service member, or civilian), who needs help with a spinal injury, contact their organization at http://operationregeneration.org or toll-free at 1-855-OPREGEN (855-677-3436).
