The Life Rolls On Foundation and Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation announced recently that the two spinal cord injury-focused organizations would merge and the Life Rolls On Foundation, based in Los Angeles, will serve as the West Coast headquarters and division of the Reeve Foundation. The Reeve Foundation is a national, nonprofit organization dedicated to finding cures and treatments for spinal cord injuries and improving the lives of people living with paralysis. Life Rolls On, founded by Jesse and Josh Billauer, is dedicated to improving the quality of life for young people affected by spinal cord injury and uses action sports as a platform to inspire possibilities despite paralysis.

In his lifetime, actor Christopher Reeve was best known for his role as “Superman” on the silver screen. But he also was a real-life superhero to the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, an organization he helped found after a horseback-riding accident left him paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life. The organization is dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding research and to improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis.
