Grants Galore! Celebrate these momentum-driving stories.

Our "Keep Moving Forward" Grant provides the momentum they need!

I can't help but spin my wheels in joy when I think of all the outstanding people your support has enabled us to provide practical, life-changing help to through Triumph Foundation's Keep Moving Forward Grant. Take a quick minute to read about just a few.

First up, meet Michael. His momentum-filled journey is a testament to his resilience and determination. Despite facing a severe spinal cord injury, Michael's spirit remains unbroken. With the help of a Triumph grant, he now has the tools he needs to navigate his home environment with greater ease. From a portable ramp to therapy equipment, your generosity has provided Michael with essential equipment for his path to independence and mobility.

Next, let me introduce you to Lakan. His life changed dramatically on July 2, 2022 after a bodyboarding accident resulted in a severe spinal cord injury. Rescued by fellow surfers and aided by lifeguards, he underwent recovery at Sharp Memorial Hospital's ICU and rehabilitation unit. Lakan faced many challenges, including necessary equipment not being covered by insurance. Triumph Foundation assisted by providing a Shower Buddy new tilt commode & shower chair. His story highlights resilience amid adversity, and thanks to your generosity, he can continue to be the active with equipment vital for his dignity and independence.

And finally, we have Taylor from Tennessee, whose unwavering spirit shines brightly through her story of momentum. After the initial shock of her spinal cord injury, Taylor dreamt of reclaiming her independence and exploring the community, local hills and rivers once again. With the support of people like you, the final piece - hand controls for her vehicle - provided by Triumph Foundation, Taylor is now one obstacle ahead toward realizing her dreams.

These stories are just a snapshot of the impact your support has on individuals and families facing spinal cord injuries through our Keep Moving Forward Grant. Your kindness and generosity are truly making a difference in the lives of those we serve.
