Phrna 328-8161 "The Pioneer and Leading Retail Shop In Lelhbridge" I FINEST QUALITY PASTRY AND BAKERY PRODUCTS Paraplegic workers Appeal-supported By MARGARET IAJCKIIUTIST Stall Writer Actidenls are the most com- mon cause of paraplegia. When an Individual becomes thus han- dicapped he enters into a '.vor' which is too often thoughtless of the needs of people confined to wheelchairs. He can't wheel up steps, so he can't get into puhlic build- ings, schools, churches and the- atres unless there is a ramp to allow him easy access A person who is rendered paraplegic at 25 has a life ex- pectancy ol more than 30 years. Unless he is re-established in a worthwhile occupation, he loses his feeling of worth and dignity and rightfully resents the long years he must be de- pendent on goi-crnment aid. If a paraplegic is not rehab- ilitated to social and economic independence he will need fi- nancial assistance constantly, that Is, per month for 30 years, or in government support. The Canadian Paraplegic So- ciety estimates that if to is spent on medical sfa social economic rehabilita- tion and follow up, this same individual may be expected to live out of hospital and earn per month. That is the same per month for 30 years, or in earnings. To rehabilitate paraplegics to their optimum potential is the goal of the association. The Calgary region, which in- cludes Lethbridge and southern Alberta, has estimated that in 1972 it will require to assist paraplegics dependent on the -rogram. The Canadian Paraplegic As- sociation is an agency of the United Appeal. A portion of the 1971 United Appeal Campaign commitment of will be assigned to the association to help it carry on its work.
