Welcome to the Paralyzed Veterans of America Nevada Chapter
Paralyzed Veterans of America received its charter in 1999 covering
Nevada and part of Utah from our headquarters in Las Vegas, Nevada. We
closley follow activities in the Las Vegas clinics and the Reno VAMC
Spinal Cord Injury Clinics. Each year we donate money to meet specific
needs in each of the VAMC's located in Las Vegas and Reno.
Chapter is a member of the Paralyzed Veterans of America that was
chartered in 1946. After WWII the life expectancy for the spinal cord
injured was two years. The veteran faced many hardships including no
accessibility to public places, inadequate follow up health care, and
almost no prosthetics equipment. The Paralyzed Veterans of America was
founded to correct these and many other problems faced by the spinal
cord injured and diseased veterans.
