Walking with Anthony

Forever Changing the Recovery Outcome of Spinal Cord Injury

Walking with Anthony

Walking With Anthony believes that everyone with a Spinal Cord Injury should have equal access to life-altering medical care. We provide direct and immediate assistance to individuals and families through our granting programs. Our focus is on recovery through spinal cord injury rehab.

Although proven therapies and solutions for those with Spinal Cord Injury are already in existence, they are largely unavailable to the average person. The cost to get just one person out of a wheelchair is exorbitant, and insurance doesn’t cover it. We are here to change that.

With your help, our heroes with Spinal Cord Injury can get through the hopeless despair and get financial assistance for the treatment they desperately need. Much hard work lies ahead for families affected by SCI. With your help, our heroes can get stronger, live healthier, and have the opportunity to walk again. Let’s take these first steps… together.

Anthony’s Story

In the late morning of February 6, 2010, Anthony Purcell dove into the waters of Miami Beach

It was something he’d done many times before.

This time, he misjudged the depth of his landing spot, broke his neck, and bruised the C5 and C6 vertabrae in his spine. He injured his spinal cord. He was paralyzed, unable to resurface from the water on his own.

Thanks to the quick rescue efforts of his cousin Bernie, who pulled him from the waters, and the emergency personnel who quickly arrived at the scene, Anthony’s life was saved.

But his life would never be the same.

YOUR SUPPORT TELLS THE INSURANCE COMPANIES THEY NEED TO DO MORE!

And it tells the person suffering from their injuries that they are not alone in this fight.

Although proven therapies and solutions are already in existence, they are unavailable to the average person suffering from Spinal Cord Injury.

Insurance companies do a poor job of providing coverage for adequate treatment, and some will not cover it all.

How can they only provide ONE month of care for an injury that requires years of rehab?

Even if they doubled up their coverage, it is still not enough. It takes hundreds of thousands of dollars to get just one victim the proper therapy and care-giving they need.

This astronomical cost is what prohibits many people from getting the help they desperately need.

YOUR SUPPORT, SIGNING THE PETITION, TELLS THE INSURANCE COMPANY THEY NEED TO DO MORE!

And it tells the person suffering from this horrific injury, they are not alone in this fight.

Sarah was involved in an accident, just 10 days before her birthday when she suffered a C6-T4 spinal cord injury.

Even with a complicated diagnosis and very limited use of her arms and core, she has had impressive progress and has been able to perform tasks such as: standing at parallel bars with little bracing and recently walking legs on the treadmill.

All of this has been possible thanks to her incredible determination and the help of all you!

Click the link in our bio to see how you can help Sarah and others like her pay for rehab after an SCI.

The impact we have

One of the things we learned in Anthony's first year of hospitalization is:

How costly it is to have a spinal cord injury.

We estimate that what a person needs financially to cover the first year is $100,000.
A number that causes a great deal of stress and worries for people who need calm at the moment so they can focus on the recovery process.

And that is why our main mission is to raise funds to help as many people as we can.
