‘It’s Our Lives’ is the third book in the 'It's My Life' series. The book is a collection of inspiring stories from friends and family of people who have been paralysed by Spinal Cord Injury.  When someone is paralysed it is a life-changing event, not only for the person injured, but for their family and friends as well.  Whilst the patient gets all the support they need during their stay in hospital, their friends and family members are often left feeling isolated and alone, with no one to turn to.  Reading the stories in this book will remind them that they are not alone in how they are feeling and coping, and give some insight into the ways that others have managed.

Our Independent Living Advisors give copies of the book, free of charge, to newly injured patients in Spinal Injury Centres.

"There is likely another partner, mother/father, sister/brother, daughter/son close by who, like you, has a story to tell and a helpful message to offer. I am confident their story will bring you comfort and make the hard moments that little bit easier."
- Sarah Standish, Family Counsellor at National Spinal Injuries Centre
