Laura is one of my favorite people. She loves the outdoors and is always up for an adventure. When she called to tell me about her sand sledding accident, it broke my heart knowing how this could impact her future. Her resulting spinal cord injury left her with limited movement of her arms and legs, and would potentially prevent her from participating in the very activities she loves. Fortunately, she is a very motivated and determined person.

With the help of Craig Hospital's phenomenal therapists, doctors, nurses, staff, therapy programs, community integration programs and everything else they offer, Laura's recovery has been inspiring. Her first adventures spent exploring Colorado were made possible by powered wheelchairs and trackchairs provided either by Craig or Craig's partners. As she improved, Craig continued to provide adaptive alternatives to the activities she loves, like kayaking and biking, and gave her the opportunity to try new adaptive activities like scuba diving!!

In honor of her return to Buffalo, I've decided to surprise her with a donation to Craig Hospital’s Areas of Greatest Need. To learn more about these areas, please visit and explore: https://craighospital.org/foundation/areas-of-need

If you would like to contribute to this gift, please click the “donate now” button. I will be presenting her with a card during her welcome home party (April 14th) that includes the donation amount and any messages you have for her. Please feel free to send your messages for Laura to my email, eacapogna@gmail.com.

If you would prefer to donate through cash or check, please send your donation directly to Craig Hospital and include a note to allocate your gift to Team Downtown Brown:
