Liz, T7 spinal cord injury

Liz is a T7 paraplegic. She suffered a spinal cord stroke in 2006. Once she was discharged from outpatient therapy, she realized that she needed to commit to engaging in therapeutic exercise in order to maintain what she gained in outpatient therapy, and to ward off risk factors that lead to cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
