Christopher Reeve Foundation Peer Mentor

The Christopher Reeve Foundation came to visit Rehabilitation Hospital of the Pacific this past week here in Honolulu to teach a class on  peer mentoring to a few of us that have been injured for a while. It was an amazing experience, Reeve taught us vital techniques on mentoring.

It was great to connect personally with key members from Reeve. Its such a great foundation and is the leading source of information on paralysis in the world. The twin flame logo the foundation uses has a beautiful meaning: one flame is Chris and is for a cure, the other flame is for Dana and represents a better way of life. Its beautiful what Dana said to Chris to change his view on life… “you’re still you, and I love you..”
