    It does happen. I have had three patients with siblings who already had a SCI, 3 who had parents with a SCI, and 2 that had uncles with SCI. Quite a few more had close friends with SCI.

      Well its good to know uour family is not cursed then. As my sister rehabs I have been able to offer support, since I went through it. It will be weird though for my parents having us both in chairs.

        Chad's cousin sustained an SCI 2 years ago. No curse, just a statistical anamoly ... a sad one though. (( hug ))
