Thread: Who are the Family Forum Members?

  1. #1

    Who are the Family Forum Members?

    Just to get the ball rolling, I thought it'd be interesting to see where our 'family membership' lies. So tell us who you are! And if I've left out a category, I only had five lines to work with!

    Tough times don't last - tough people do.

    I'll go first, since I'm here already . I'm Marmalady, aka Jackie, mother of Matt, my 27 year old son with a C4-5 SCI, as well as a TBI. I'm also a moderator of the 'Caregiving' forum, and have been with the CareCure site since its beginning.

    Looks like you and I are the only ones to vote so far, Marmalady.

    I am Jesse's Mom, Joey. Jesse is 23 years old, a C7, incomplete since Dec. 14, 2002. He lives in CA going to therapy and I live in Minnesota with my husband and our other son, Jesse's brother, Bert. We have a family business which is beekeeping.

    I'm Martha, my children are Tatiana (tata489)and Ruslan (ruru482). Unfortunately their father--C7 quad, 27 years post--and I are about to divorce. However he will always be their father, and I know they are looking forward to meeting other children of sci's out there and talking about stuff.

    For me, the entire Care/Cure forum has helped me to better understand my soon-to-be ex-husband. It has helped me sort out a lot of issues that hurt all of us in our little family--some of them sci related, others not.

    Thanks again Wise, Jeff, Bethney, Marmalady, etc. What you do every day for all of us out here is incomprehensible.

    Hi, my son Jason is almost 14 and became paralysed after a collision with another soccer player seven years ago. He suffered an ischeamic brainstem stroke ( basilar artery dissection ) and became locked-in. He is incomplete now, but still completely dependent on others for his care.

    I've always only been interested in CURE issues since I feel there wouldn't be any care issues if we could just bring about the cure.

    BTW Nanda, I was born in Bogota but have European parents

    I'm betheny, a c5-6 walking quad and a mother. My stepson is 22, I've had him 20 yrs. now. My son Jacob is 14. I also have a 2 yr old granddaughter named Kayli who is pretty darned special. These kids keep life interesting, they teach me a lot, they drive me to distraction and make me laugh, sometimes simultaneously. I am very proud to meet all of you!
