Today is an great day! The day we launch an invaluable tool for the Adapte-Toit Foundation: a website that constitutes a significant first step towards the realization of our mission aiming to contribute towards making a crucial, positive, and real difference in our modern society.
A warm and heartfelt thanks to the entire Tegara team for their excellent work and irreproachable service.
At the age of eighteen, a tragic car accident left me with several lesions to my spinal cord and I found myself paralyzed from my shoulders down to my toes. My life and that of my loved ones had just been turned upside down for ever. I was, however, able to regain my autonomy thanks to my strong drive, my family, my friends, numerous rehabilitation professionals, as well as the financial support that I was privileged enough to receive. I took back control of my life and gave it a new purpose and direction. I allowed myself to find once again the joy in living a happy and accomplished life!
Through the Adapte-Toit Foundation my aim is to give to those with a spinal cord injury who are not receiving adequate funding the opportunity to rebuild their lives in an adapted living environment with all of the necessary assistance services.
In Québec, approximately 63% of people who find themselves paralyzed following a spinal cord injury receive no financial support from a paying agent.
Feelings of isolation and insecurity are too often present in the lives of many of these injured. The need is urgent. We must act.
The Adapte-Toit Foundation could not exist without your participation and support. In fact, your contribution is essential. Every gesture counts! Together, we are making autonomy accessible and inclusive!
Thank you for your support,
