WAGS of SCI: The Podcast - Ep. 109 - Disability Pride: What Do People Still Not Know? Part 1

July is disability pride month, and we are celebrating by discussing some of the top things we, as WAGS, wish people KNEW about living life with a spinal cord injury (and alll the things that come with it!). This episode is meant to talk about the issues, topics and set backs that people still are not aware of, that need to know in order to understand truly what people living this SCI life go through. For instance, did you know that disabled people STILL cannot marry in the US without losing their medical benefits? Did you know that a woman in Canada was approved to have medically assisted suicide because she couldn’t find an accessible place to live (yes you can google this its alll there)? We discuss this and many more juicy topics that may be new for even you! July is all about awareness, and this episode is perfect for your friends, family and colleagues in order to help them understand your life a little bit more.
