Guest: Jordan Ames Craig Foundation Communications Manager and Ashley Jack Craig Hospital graduate (former patient) Craig Hospital is a rehab and research hospital committed to spinal cord and brain injuries.  Craig Hospital sees patients from around the world.  The average age of the typical patient at Craig is a 42 years old.  Before a patient can come to Craig there is an interview process because of how rigorous the rehabilitation is at Craig.  Ashely shared her story about her experience at Craig Hospital.  She was driving down the highway one night after work, and the driver ahead unexpectedly stepped on their brakes, she swerved, hit the guard rail, and her car rolled five times.  They have been blessed and have not seen a single case of COVID but donations have been down.  A lot of the programs are donor funded and many of the treatments are not covered by insurance.  Craig Hospital is a non-profit and they reply on donor support.  Giving Tuesday is happening December 1st and they have a goal to raise $100,000.  craighospital.org/givingtuesday
