So, Here's The Bad News...
- 6 million people. That's the number in the U.S. that suffer with paralysis, which is, like, a ton of people. It's even more than the populations of Los Angeles, Washington D.C. and Philadelphia, combined.
- 36 days of therapy. If you are paralyzed or disabled, this is the number of days of therapy you will receive, on average, before your insurance coverage ends. Yep, you read that right. 36 days.
- Less than $10,000 per year. Therapy is really expensive and this is what roughly 25% of households, with a person who is paralyzed, earn per year. Translation: ongoing therapy is not at all affordable and those with a lot less are particularly affected.
*The above is based on recent Reeve Foundation survey on the prevalence of paralysis in the U.S., which is real uplifting stuff.
Now, The Good News!
NextStep subsidizes over 60% of the client expenses, making therapy, exercise and recovery considerably more affordable for our neighbors, friends and family members that are dealing with paralysis. Because, well, that's just how we roll...
