The Big Disaster

In May of 1995, Reeves had a jumping accident. His hands were tangled in the horse's bridle and he landed head first, fracturing the uppermost vertebrae in his spine. Reeve was instantly paralyzed from the neck down and unable to breathe. Prompt medical attention saved his life and delicate surgery stabilized the shattered C1-C2 vertebrae and literally reattached Reeve's head to his spine. After the incident he gained courage because of it and because of it he built a foundation to help people who also suffered as he did. He helped pass the1999 Work Incentives Improvement Act, which allows people with disabilities to return to work and still receive disability benefits.
