Warrior Momz was established to assist families and loved ones dealing with spinal cord injury.
We are 3 Momz with sons who have all been living with Spinal Cord Injury.
There is so much emphasis on Stem Cell, that seems to be the only discussion point, but we are experiencing changes using different "below injury recovery" options...
Todays program I will be chatting with Jeannie McClelland Pickard whose son Chris suffered a devastating spinal cord injury 3 years ago...
in Self Help
Kay Ledson is on a mission. As the mom of a son, Josh, who suffered severe spinal cord injury, she shares hope that spinal cord injury is not impossible to overcome. Josh overcame his injury and was Relentless in his quest for cure, and that is the name of his book... Relentless. Kay's mission as a loving mom was to not allow Josh to give in to the supposed hopelessness of the injury and supported on Josh's journey to return to full health. Join us on this special call of hope, healing, support, and the power of parental love!
Erica Predum, lives in Fort Wayne Indiana -was one of the first to "want to be involved with Warrior Momz" - Erica is the first to help someone with a spinal cord injury.
Erica is a single MOM, raising 2 boys, Aiden 9 years, Junior 3 years, Junior, was born after her accident...
Even though we have never met personally, Erica & I have been friends on Face Book for some time, I am constantly in awe of Erica and how she manages her recovery program, looking after her boys and the support she gives to others in our community...
May 14th 2007, mile marker 117 on I69 @ 5:06 pm my life as I knew it was changed, forever. Everything I once knew how to do is now different. The way I feel about everything is different. The way I think is now different. My life now isn't the life I imagined or ever hoped for. It's been 6 years and I still struggle with accepting the fact I will never live the life I had for 22 years and I still struggle understanding how everything was taken from me in a split second, when I hit the highway. Through those daily struggles I still deal with they have strengthened and moulded me into the person I'm proud to be today. Thanks to the love and support of those who've carried me through the dark moments, to help me see the light that my new life still has, I can look at myself and be proud of how far I've came.

My name is Tammy Potts, our lives changed on July 24, 2008. That is the day our son Kenny broke his neck and began his journey on recovering from his C-5 spinal cord injury. With no guidance or a reference book to go by, we chose to follow our guts by believing in Kenny's prior physical abilities and strong will, we know he will conquer this injury and prove all of his American Medical team wrong.
With 2 trips to Cologne, Germany for stem cell therapy/treatment, hundreds of hours of physical/occupational therapy, Acupuncture and Chiropractic care. All while being free of prescription medications, Kenny has set forth a path for others to follow.
My name is Kenny Potts, I love the feeling of being free and a great adrenaline rush. I worked as a apprentice roofer. I loved being up high and working outdoors in the sun. On July 28, 2008, I set out to relieve some stress, but instead of returning home, I found myself bring rushed to the hospital after a simple motocross crash. After that moment, my mom and I knew that we would be helping others, by our spiritual and holistic methods of therapies that have helped me continue my recovery.
I have continued these therapies that my doctors in Germany have set in motion, along with staying positive and focused on a full recovery.
I've been told that I would never eat or breath on my own. My muscles would never return.... I would be in an electric wheelchair. I have never excepted those words and never will.
