MP SEEBACK RAISES AWARENESS ABOUT SPINAL CORD INJURY

Posted on 29 May 2013 by admin

Kyle Seeback, Member of Parliament for Brampton West participated in the 6th annual Chair-Leaders Campaign today. MP Seeback spent the whole day in a wheelchair to help raise awareness about spinal cord injury.

With more than 86,000 Canadians currently living with a spinal cord injury and an estimated 4,300 new cases each year, the work of Spinal Cord Injury Canada has never been more important.

This “gave me perspective on the daily challenges faced by people in a chair”, commented MP Seeback when questioned about his experience. “Experiencing this change to mobility, I have much respect and admiration for those who are determined not to let an injury define their life”.

More than two dozen parliamentarians, myself included, participated in the 6th annual Chair-Leaders Campaign to gain greater insight into the challenges persons living with a spinal cord injury face on a daily basis.
