Many people have heard about Wheel:Life’s online programs and special giveaways, but did you know Wheel Life is a global initiative that assists people in addressing the many questions and challenges that come with using a wheelchair? Wheel:Life resources help people:

  • find quality health and medical resources, related research and news;
  • explore educational and employment avenues;
  • research the proper adaptive equipment, assistive technology, home modification and home medical equipment for their needs;
  • network within local and virtual peer support groups;
  • discover accessible travel destinations; and
  • enjoy a full and active life as a wheelchair user.

Another part of our active outreach program is providing support and encouragement for friends who use wheelchairs.  If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, you probably see our posts along those lines frequently, as well as related research news and human interest stories.

One of our most popular posts are the free giveaways that Wheel:Life offers periodically.  We’re able to provide these free giveaways and promotional programs thanks to the generosity of our sponsors like Hollister Incorporated, Cure Medical, Medtrade and SPORTS ‘N SPOKES magazine.  Learn more about our sponsors here.

More than 30,000 people saw our last giveaway, a bumper sticker that invoked a little British humor while appealing to friends who grow weary of the second glances they receive while moving about town in their chair.

This September, our amazing friend Kim Ravenscraft Harrison of Transverse Myelitis Awareness Georgia was lobbying in Washington, DC for Disability Rights and she shared a little bit of Wheel:Life with the White House!

Kim took this picture on the front lawn of the White House, while lobbying in DC for disability rights. Thank you, Kim!

And Kim wasn’t alone, as Wheel Life mailed out more than 1000 of the Keep Calm stickers to friends nationwide.  Chances are good you might see one soon on the back of a wheelchair in your hometown. Don’t worry though if you didn’t snag the Keep Calm sticker while it was still available! We’ll be bringing it back for Round 2 soon.
*Due to cost, only available to US residents please.

Fill out the request form below and we’ll mail a Wheel Life postcard to you soon:

    • This gives me inspiration. Some days it’s hard being disabled especially after being so independent. This poem will come in very handy on those difficult days. Thank you Chris for writing the poem, its awesome which must say alot about yourself.

  1. Thank you for that beautiful poem! It truly touched me and inspired me to look past my disability and injuries, (like you said, everyone has a disability in some form), and what I cannot do anymore, and to look to what I’m still able to do and the abilities I am still granted. This poem also helped pull me out of a self-sorry mood and have a brighter outlook on the future and how I can still accomplish my dreams, and put into perspective how there are so many people in the same boat (or far worst) as me!

  2. I have muscular dystrophy and my kids just bought me my first wheelchair. I have been fighting the chair for years…..now I am going to print and post that poem on my fridge!
    I love i , it inspires me to keep on “rolling”……..my life isn’t over, it is evolving!
    i am thinking of getting it copied to hand out to anyone who starts the “pity party” routine. would even be nice to place on the cars of the people who park in the handicap spots, those spots are there for a reason perhaps this would make them see us as people once again.

  3. WONDERFULL!!! I taught wheelchair bound kids in a self-contained classroom. We would go swimming, fishing, horseback riding etc. I tried to educate the parents about all of the things that are available to wheelchair bound individuals. I also have a farmer friend who is wheelchair bound. He can run that farm and is all over the place!!

  4. THE poem is beautiful it sums up how I feel as a person with a disability. People don’t believe you want to get up and go, they think you sit around the house sad.

  5. my thoughts exactly. I missed this this sticker also and would like to have one if available?

  6. I love the poem, I have to use a wheelchair, I have tried to make lemonade from lemons. I would love to have a sticker.

  7. love the poem and agree . I would like to have 1 of the free stickers please

  8. I have a close friend who is on Phoenix Mayor’s Office of Protocol : Phoenix Sister Cities…..& is wheelchair bound. I would love to give this sticker to him. please advise when you get more in =) love the poem…

  9. I think it was a great poem how he describes us the users of a wheelchair and how every person should see us we have our differences but they don’t know what the future has for them and their family.And I would love one of those stickers for my chair.God Bless You All!

  10. My brother just lost his leg in August in a motorcycle wreck and this poem is all the things I have been wanting to say but not knowing how. Thanks… I would love to get a sticker for him if you guys have any left.

  11. I love it. Dont ever give up life might change in a direction you dont like but make the best of what you got. You only get stronger when bad things happen than if zGod always just gave us everything so easy.

  12. this is just so awful,,i dont know what i would do if my brother or sister lost one of there legs in a wreck but i am thankful but i use a wheel chair cause i have stage 3 cancer

  13. I don’t see the form you’re/I’m supposed to fill out! I’d like to get this sticker, too.

    • Where it shows the sticker, there is a scroll down right beside it in the middle of the screen. If you do that, the form to fill out is right below it.

  14. i would like to recieve this sticker for my Grandmother that does have to use a wheel chair to get around in.I think the sticker will bring a big smile to her face.I am in college now and do not get to spend as much time as i use to with her.Thank you,Amber

  15. I know someone in a wheelchair and I don’t think they feel as important as before. But I want them to know that they are still important and matter.

  16. My daughter, Marla Saltman James is in a wheelchair(electronic scooter)which is quite tattered and the seat is torn up. The headrest is held together with tape as is the seat. She lost part of her leg through an accident and had to have 5 operations prior to losing her leg below the knee. She is a very brave woman and I love her very much. Marla would use your free postcard on her scooter. Thank you for your prompt attention regarding this matter. Marla’s Mom, Corey Saltman

  17. My 11year old son has had a chair all his life. I would enjoy any inspiring items to bring up his hopes

  18. I would love to display this on my wheelchair and see the smiles on people’s faces as they read it. Relax it’s only a wheelchair it won’t bite and neither will i

  19. I right now have about 5 people I know who are in wheel chairs to get around as well as I help out where I can in places like notching homes and anyware I can . So one day if I end up in one maybe others will do the same as well as something’s they can do in there own and can show everyone what they can do . One a few years ago asked me to race her I told her I can’t today beause my feet are really bad so she had one of the nures bring another wheel chair and said to me u don’t need ur get she showed me how to use it then said lets race it was really fun and I learned a lot

  20. My mother has to use a wheelchair and would like this for her.People that don’t use one, or don’t know anyone that does, sometimes are very impatient with those that do.God bless those that understand.

  21. Good for when I travel and people look at me as if to say “What are YOU doing in a wheelchair?”

  22. Have to use one myself now and then, great for you to give assistance where needed
