Many of our members have been generous enough to share their stories with us. These stories tell how we came to have CES. These are cautionary tales. We hope anyone who reads these stories will learn from them and remember that sometimes, not often but SOMETIMES, a herniated disc can cause devastating, permanent nerve damage.

We hope as you read these you understand this is a public Web site and anyone who comes here can read the most personal experiences of our life. We thank the generosity of the brave and caring people that have shared these stories, so that maybe, just maybe, someone reading this will remember what they have read and perhaps prevent someone that they know and love from going through what we have experienced.

Note: Each story will open in it's own window. To return to this page simple close the story's window.
