My 15 year old son has also suffered a T4 level injury that has left him paralized from the chest down. I am looking for any new research in that area. Also, in response to the quadrapalegic who was an ex-police officer, We have checked all sources that we can think of and there is no financial help available for us until my son reaches 18. Then depending on his income, he may receive disability income. We wish him (the ex-police officer) luck in his search for medical as well as financial help.
