Low Country Breeze Group - Led by Barbara Delia

deliabarbara68 [at]


I sustained a T-10/11 SCI and three traumatic brain injuries, on Sept. 17th, 2007.  Since my injury, meeting challenges and learning different ways to accomplish everyday tasks has kept me busy physically and mentally. Being a Peer Group Leader

for Low Country Breeze is very rewarding.  I enjoy assisting others and providing resources to help meet their needs.  Comforting new and long time members with knowledge and experience from our group is very rewarding.  Going to fun events,

providing education, sharing meals, and developing friendships is what makes our group special.

Spartanburg Group - Led by Dot Colson

On sunny days you can find me floating in the pool. My other love is extreme couponing. It’s not uncommon for me to have $25 to $30 in coupons per shopping trip. I love the thrill of the deal! I also


can be found cheering on the USC football team or involved in DIY projects like making tufted headboards or staining cabinets.  Locally I lead the Spartanburg SCI Support Group. Also, I enjoy an empty nest since my two adult children have flown

the coop!

Florence Group - Led by Shane Scurry

I have a C6 injury and I live in Bishopville.  I'm a Graduate of the University of South Carolina with a major in Biology and Chemistry. I enjoy spending time with my family and Fiancée, grilling, cutting grass and watching College football.  I absolutely

love our group. Members say all the time, we identify more like a family than a group. Everyone displays respect towards each other and offers assistance with meetings and social events. We are truly blessed to have such a close friendship with

each of our members.

Midlands Group - Led by Sherwood Toatley

sl.toatley [at]


Forty years ago, at the age of 11, I had a C1/C2 incomplete spinal cord injury in a freak bicycle accident. I refused to allow my high level spinal cord injury get in the way of anything I wanted to accomplish.

I started out in the workforce as a Receptionist at a local rehabilitation hospital which prepared me for my 30 plus year career as a 911 Dispatcher. I've also worked a number of years as a Spinal Cord Injury Peer Navigator for the Medical University

of South Carolina while contributing to several research grants. My career opportunities has supported his love of travel, which has taken me as far as Paris and London.

 I've been volunteering with the South Carolina Spinal Cord Injury Association since 2011, and have served on the Board of Directors. Since medical retirement, I continue to serve the SCI community, and those who have given so much of

themselves towards my recovery. I pride myself in saying my “condition is not my conclusion”.

Coastal (Myrtle Beach) Group - Led by Veronica Tario

veronicatario [at]


I’m a Myrtle Beach native who enjoys surfing, horseback riding, painting and being out in nature. For someone who takes pleasure in being active, I wanted to create a group in which I could help show folks with disabilities that there plenty of ways

to not only push the boundaries of your “limitations”, but to step outside of your comfort zone and live life to its fullest. After almost a decade of leading this group I have watched my attendees flourish and in doing so facilitated in my growth as well.

That reason alone is why I have continued this. So come join us and reap the benefits as so many others, including myself have!


Group meets the first Thursday of the month @ 6:00PM
