Disability Discounts

This young lady, Rhana Fleming, has Transverse Myelitis which is the same neurological disease that we all have... Rhana is now 15 years old I believe and had her onset when she was 12. She was a very accomplished gymnast at the time and now is basically 24/7 in a chair. She has lost almost total use of the right side of her body..https://www.facebook.com/groups/RhanasJourney/ Since her onset, her father Robert Fleming has been a champion for not only Rhana but for the disabled in general after seeing some of the challenges that his daughter has endured. He recently just opened a website which is a site for discounts for those that are disabled. It is free to register on the site and all of the discounts available are offered to the disabled person and their caregiver, from the company or manufacturer. It is the company or manufacturer that is paying to advertise their service and coupon on the website...http://disabilitydiscount.com/  This is all completely and totally legit as I run a Transverse Myelitis support group on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/TMFolk) and have known Rhana and her dad since they first joined the group. If anyone has any questions you can PM me or Robert Fleming .. Thank you and help us support the site.....The more members he has on the site, the more companies will ultimately end up participating and offering thing.

Where is everyone?

I joined a few days ago and am looking for others. The latest posts I can find are years old. Where is everyone? Or am I doing something wrong?I lost my left side Aug 20th, 2014 after returning from a 3 week camping, hiking outdoor adventure up the Blue Ridge Parkway from SC to VA. Two months of trying therapy, major surgery on my neck C3-C7, five months of rehab, 12 weeks out of work, a year of hell and finally coping with getting a wheelchair and some kind of life back.Really love to find a support group or blog that will help me thru the next phase of life. Doesn't look like any recover from here so it's living with the reality of TM.See More
