Molly wanted Dana and Will to know how Christopher's foundation helped change her life. Although doctors said she had less than a one percent chance of ever walking or using her hands again, today, Molly has limited movement thanks to treatment that is funded by the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation.
Molly met Christopher Reeve just a week before he passed away. "We talked about all the therapies, and he was very interested in everything," Molly says. "Thank you, Dana, for everything. Because of your husband, I'm walking today. And I just wanted to thank you."
Dana says she is thrilled to see how the foundation's rehabilitative research is helping people like Molly.
"Molly was able to enjoy the Lokomat®—the treadmill walking therapy," Dana says. "And this is what Chris did, too. He had some return of function. He was so excited…Molly's a perfect example of what you can fund if you give to our foundation."
