Nearly 1 in 50 people living with paralysis!

According to a study initiated by the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, there are nearly 1 in 50 people living with paralysis -- approximately 6 million people. Over 1million Americans have spinal cord injuries.

This is the first time I have seen such statistics and I am surprised. The wheelchair community is much bigger than I would have guessed.
