Physical Therapy Benefits:

Grant applications are considered for individuals that have no therapy benefits available from insurers (including Medicare) and are without personal resources to pay for therapy - please note the highlighted section from our mission statement:



While scientists, doctors and researchers around the world seek a cure for spinal cord and other neurological injuries, the reponsibility of high intensity rehabilitation therapists is to keep those of us with SCI/TBI healthy and fit until a cure is found, or in a lifetime of fitness.

Unfortunately, there are injured individuals without the healthcare benefits or private resources for ongoing therapy and exercise.

The mission of The Mary and Charles A. Parkhill Foundation for Spinal Cord Rehabilitation is to raise funds that will be granted to those individuals, in the form of scholarships, to obtain therapy services.

Please describe your specific circumstances related to the availability of resources to fund physical therapy:
