Loss of income, medical bills, rehabilitation, and the costs of daily care leave many spinal cord injury survivors in dire financial straits. Many families resort to loans to cover gaps in their medical insurance or daily expenses, but loans can end up destroying a family's credit and costing thousands of dollars.

For instance, some spinal cord injury grants cover the costs of returning to school, while others cover general living expenses or medical bills.
