Support Paralyzed Veterans of America
June 17, 2013 - Mike Donahey
“We live with the problems. We work on the answers.”
That is the motto of the Paralyzed Veterans of America. Our family became acquainted with PVA some time ago, after receiving a mail solicitation. My wife checked around and heard only good things about the not-for-profit organization. Since then, and spread out over a period of years, our family made a number of donations. It is our way of trying to help those who served, and who came back wheel-chair bound.
Founded in 1946, PVA is the only congressional chartered veterans service organization dedicated solely for the benefit and representation of individuals with spinal cord injury or disease. The organization has a laudable plan of work for addressing issues which impact paralyzed veterans. Among them are advocating for, and monitoring the delivery of high quality and appropriate health care benefits and services for veterans. Another is to promote medical research to cure spinal cord dysfunction and other related problems. Additionally, it educates society about the attitudinal, physical, and legal barriers that confront persons with disabilities.
I'm hoping Times-Republican readers will consider supporting PVA too.
