12%* of the U.S. population has a severe disability
that affects at least one function of daily living.
This group of people does not live in a vacuum;
they have children, parents, siblings and
grandparents who are involved in their daily lives.
Therefore 36% of the population, or 1 in 3 people,
is touched by severe disability.
