Christopher Reeve Dies at 52
Posted Oct 11, 2004

Christopher Reeve died Sunday of complications from an infection caused by a bedsore. He went into cardiac arrest Saturday, while at his Pound Ridge home, then fell into a coma and died Sunday at a hospital surrounded by his family, his publicist said.

Reeve was the nation's most recognizable spokesman for spinal cord research. He had been paralyzed since his horse riding accident in 1995, but he vowed he would one day walk again. By 2000, Reeve was able to move his index finger, and a specialized workout regimen made his legs and arms stronger.


Christopher Reeve was most famous for his role as Superman even though he did have many other roles. He beat out over 200 actors for the role of Superman when he was virtually unknown.

Recently Reeve has made guest appearances on the WB's Smallville where he played a scientist Dr. Swann who gives Clark Kent information on his Kryptonian heritage.
He played on the episodes Legacy and  Rosetta.

Christopher Reeve's legacy is to be remembered as a true hero not just an actor that played one. He was determined to continue his acting and to find a cure for paralysis. He vowed to walk again and continued forward against incredible odds.
His efforts are bound to have a lasting effect on the future of spinal cord research.

Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation (CRPF) -  committed to funding research that develops treatments and cures for paralysis caused by spinal cord injury and other central nervous system disorders.

I will always remember the first time I watched Superman the movie as a child. I wonder if this generation will ever find the same amount of excitement and amazement at a movie as that one brought. Reeve brought Superman to life as if he came right out of the pages of Action Comics.
America's prayers are with his family I'm sure.  May God bless and help them through this great loss.
