The Live With It Foundation Mission

The Live With It Foundation is a non-profit organization that was formed to improve the quality of life for individuals, families, and caregivers impacted by paralysis.

Learning to “Live With” the limitations a person faces after a spinal cord injury is challenging. It is often a process that involves many people and organizations working together for the benefit of those impacted. We exist to help people impacted by paralysis accept their unwanted circumstances and learn to make the most of their lives.

Inspiring stories

There are approximately 300,000 people in the United States that live with a spinal cord injury. Despite the challenges, many have gone on to have careers, marriages, children, and make a positive influence in their community. Without saying a word they often challenge able-bodied people to make the most of their lives, despite their unwanted circumstances. So while our main focus may be to serve those impacted by paralysis, our goal is to encourage and inspire all individuals to find a way to learn to “live with it.”
