Wings for Life´s mission is to find a cure for spinal cord injury. 100% of every donation goes into spinal cord research. Our focus is not on practical devices, peak performances or leisure activities for people living with this dreadful injury. However, we often find interesting stories in this regard and would like to share some of them with you.
