    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.

      Not to sound cheap or anything, but I meant more about the discounts and such.

        I am an AARP member, but I find that the AAA discounts (at least for travel) are usually the same as AARP's.

          When I turned 50, just a few short years ago, I joined AARP to get a discount on my att/cingular cell phone bill. They offered a 20% monthly discount off my cell phone bill and the yearly aarp membership fee was only $12.00. Well worth it for me.
