Walking With Anthony is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping survivors of spinal cord injuries (SCI) walk the path of living victoriously over the physical, emotional, social, and financial challenges of SCI. Driven by personal experience, Walking With Anthony and its leadership are committed to making a difference in the lives of those living with SCIs.
In 2010, Anthony Purcell suffered from a devastating SCI after diving into the waters of Miami Beach — something he had done dozens of times before without incident. Paralyzed and unable to resurface on his own, Anthony was saved by his cousin but faced a tumultuous path in front of him. In addition to weeks of costly rehab, much of which is not covered by insurance, Anthony struggled with the depression and hopelessness that people with SCI often face.
Understanding the unique emotional anguish that victims of SCIs go through, Anthony and his mother, Micki, set out on a journey to provide support to other SCI victims so they do not have to face it alone.
