Paralyzed Bride Gives Her Groom The Greatest Wedding Gift By Walking Down The Aisle
Six years ago, Gina Giaffoglione was in a car accident that left her paralyzed from the waist down. A former athlete, she refused to give up on her dreams and lifestyle because of a wheelchair. Gina's wedding day is no exception, and her optimism proves to be a deciding factor in her surprise for her wedding guests. According to a study by the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, there are nearly 1 in 50 people living with paralysis (approximately six million people) in the United States. Spinal cord injuries, like those suffered in a car accident, make up 23% of all paralyzed people. Physical therapy can help people in some cases regain the use of their limbs if the damage isn't too severe.
