I have had the pleasure of partnering with SCI Saskatchewan and attending some of their community events. They are a great resource for anyone living with a spinal cord injury. SCI Saskatchewan are also incredible advocates for the disability community. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone again once the world opens back up!

“When I was a young new spinal cord injury peer mentor ship was a defining moment that made my life what it is today. If I didn’t have another person in a chair to talk about things that no one else would understand I wouldn’t have been able to come out of my shell and realize that there is a life worth living from a chair.”

SCI Saskatchewan is my go-to community contact agency.  When I need help with a disability program SCI helps me become my own self advocate.  SCI is about empowering people and focusing on abilities.  As an organization of and for people who live with a disability SCI understands first-hand the needs of the community of persons with disabilities.  SCI knows we want to live independently in the community.  During this pandemic SCI checked on how I was doing.  Thank you, SCI, I am doing just ‘tickety-boo.’

I am an HR Manager with a Master’s degree and many years of professional experience. I have been married for 19 years, has 1 son, 4 step children, and 10 grandchildren. I have had a spinal cord injury since infancy, nearly 50 years ago.

Although her disability is not considered progressive, one of the things that happens over time when you are a long-time wheelchair user, is that the disability impacts become more significant. Due to medical issues, I incurred many additional disability-related expenses such as a wheelchair accessible van with adapted head and neck supports, and power-assist wheels for for her wheelchair this year, she has also been on long term disability during this time.

The financial benefits of the SGI vehicle rebate and the SaskTel cellular plan are helpful in offsetting some of these financial costs. Every little bit helps when incurring expenses that are extremely high and on a fixed income.

Support to Spinal Cord Injury SK would go a long way to supporting individuals experiencing the impacts of disability to live and work in our chosen communities. Thank you for your support.

“When you have a spinal cord injury, your world can be complicated and full of unpredictable health issues. In my experience, that can lead to loneliness and sometimes hopelessness. Spinal Cord Injury Saskatchewan recognizes that reality and has provided me with interaction with my peers who have shown me I’m not the only one struggling. They have offered me support, ideas, and even brainstorming to help with solving problems. To me, the single most important part of their organization is the community they’ve created; I feel connected, and that’s priceless.”

“Being a peer mentor has help me help others gain independence and enjoyment with living with a disability. I know how much my message can help others, But on the same note they also help me and push me to be a better person and to continue to use my experiences to enlighten others.”
