Donate and Become a California Craig Hero

Meet the Nelson Family, California Craig Heroes

Leslie Nelson was injured in an automobile accident in 1984, sustaining both a spinal cord and traumatic brain injury. Since her injury, she’s lived in many places and over 30 years later, still cites Craig as always having offered the best care for her injury.

The staff at Craig taught Leslie to view her life in totality—not just as a survivor of her injuries.


Leslie feels it’s important to give back and get involved, “I have always felt the deep desire to give back out of my gratitude for all that I have been given. Though my prognosis was bleak at the onset of my injuries, with Craig's help, I have regained a fulfilling lifestyle that enables me to give back in many ways.”

Leslie is passionate about philanthropy and motivating others to give. That’s why the Nelsons—in partnership with Sandy Monteko-Sherman—are challenging you with a $7,500 dollar-for-dollar match! Double your donation today by giving to Craig’s #GivingTuesday California Challenge!
