2011-01-27
SUWANEE, GA, January 27, 2011 (Press-News.org) UroMed, a leading national catheter supply company, proudly sponsors a non-profit motivational speaking program called Life After Spinal Cord Injury that is now available to join on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Life-After-Spinal-Cord-Injury-SCI/182649975095273.

UroMed's founder, Bert Burns, became a quadriplegic as a result of an automobile accident during his youth. His desire to make a positive difference in the lives of people with disabilities led him to create UroMed as well as a free motivational program for peer support and rehabilitation groups called Life After Spinal Cord Injury.

Burns says, "I hope to convince patients in wheelchairs that they can still do all the things they want to do and more. They will just have to do them differently."

While presenting, Burns inspires others by sharing his story of winning a Gold Medal in the 1992 Paralympics and how he became a successful entrepreneur. He also gives his perspective on:

• Work/School
• Dating
• Sexuality
• Marriage
• Children
• Sports
• Bladder/Bowel Management

In 2010, the Life After Spinal Cord Injury program helped more than 600 medical professionals, patients, former patients and family members with information, advice and encouragement.

Life After Spinal Cord Injury is booking 2011 speaking engagements now. To learn more about Burn's story, or to invite him to speak to your organization, please visit: http://www.uromed.com/Company/BertsStory or call 1-800-841-1233.
