The Northwest Women Wheeler's Network is a social and support group consisting of wheeling women from all "walks" of life. Ages range from 20s to 70s. Our group started after an SCI forum on women's issues at the University of Washington Medical Center. Most of our members have spinal cord injuries, but we also have members with MS and other disabilities. Currently we have 51 members, most in the Greater Seattle/Tacoma area. We also have members in Oregon and one in California. Activities include an annual family picnic, holiday party, book club, political action committee, and sporting events. We also have a members-only online forum and an email listserv. New members are carefully screened. Email addresses are never shared outside the group and no spam will be received. We welcome new members. Our website is currently under construction, but our home page is http://www.nwwwn.org. We will be posting contact information on the home page soon for those who would like to join.
