‘Superman’, Christopher Reeve Would Have Been 61 Today
‘What is a hero?’ My answer was that a hero is someone who commits a courageous action without considering the consequences. . . . Now my definition is completely different. I think a hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles. They are the real heroes, and so are the families and friends who have stood by them.” —Christopher Reeve.
Christopher Reeve would have been 61 today (1952 – 2004).
The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation continues in their name:
Christopher Reeve believed that ‘nothing is impossible,’ and the 5.6 million men, women and children living with paralysis remind us of that each and every day — so this month we honor them, as we #standwithreeve.
With an unwavering commitment to improving the quality of life for those living with paralysis, we persevere toward a day where we are able to repair damaged spinal cords.
