Your Support Matters

Did you know the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab is a 501c3 nonprofit?
At Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, we not only care for patients, but also help them return to full lives. To meet this goal, we offer a number of programs designed to enhance the quality of life for people who have lost ability due to serious injury or chronic conditions. These programs are unique, but many are not generally covered by insurance.
