Biography

After a lengthy, diverse career, it was difficult to pinpoint exactly which contribution earned Dana Reeve the respect of so many. Some pointed to her work as an actor and cabaret singer; others, to her work as activist on behalf of spinal chord injury research. Still others simply admired her devotion to her husband, actor Christopher "Superman" Reeve, following an equestrian accident which left him paralyzed for the rest of his life. In truth, Dana Reeve deserved all the accolades heaped upon her during her all too brief, sometimes tragic life.
