Spinal Injury Recovery Foundation - Home

The Need for Spinal Injury Recovery Foundation

A family never plans on having a member severely injure their spine. While in intensive care, families face the extreme shock of suddenly having to arrange for long-term rehabilitation and around-the-clock care for their loved one. In Las Vegas, these families currently have little or no resources available to guide them through a myriad of crucial decisions that will impact the outcome of their loved one's long-term recovery.

Founder's Story

No one knows this better than Scott Frost, founder of SIRF, father, fiancé, loving son and entrepreneur. On May 10, 2009, Scott was injured in an off-road dirt bike accident that damaged his spinal cord and left him paralyzed from the neck down. What started as a day of fun in the hills south of Henderson Executive Airport turned into a near-fatal chain of events. [Read Scott's complete story here.]

SIRF's Origin

During the 70 days Scott spent in Las Vegas' Desert Canyon Rehabilitation Hospital, he watched other patients who didn't have the help of friends and family like he had. Many had given up hope for their futures. "It made me furious that this could happen in this day and age." I don't want anyone to have to go through the hopelessness of being so alone and distraught. I was surrounded by loved ones. I can't imagine if I hadn't had that.
