It has been 10 years since my spinal cord injury. I can clearly remember so much of the trauma of being crushed by a 7,000 pound falling tree when my husband, Mark Leder, and I were riding bicycles on June 13, 1998. When we built our two-story house 13 years ago, we thought it would last our lifetimes. We could never have anticipated how our home could further create limitations, thus enhancing my disability.
