Returning from a medical mission in earthquake-ravaged Haiti two weeks ago, Dr. Rana Hamdy reflected that one item sorely needed there was crutches. The Johns Hopkins Children's Center physician joined the center in making a public plea for the walking devices, and then she volunteered to store them in her garage, anticipating about 100 pairs. Within days, she ran out of places to put them. "We got to 1,000 pretty quickly," Hamdy said Tuesday morning as Hopkins employees loaded about 1,000 pairs of crutches, as well as canes and walkers, onto a FedEx truck to be shipped to Miami by today.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - At the Big Ten media days in late July, Maryland coach Randy Edsall was asked to identify his primary concerns heading into the season. He answered immediately: Staying healthy. The Terps , who have dealt with numerous serious injuries to key players the past two seasons, got through preseason practice relatively healthy. But the injuries have continued to mount since the season started in late August, and Maryland lost two more starters to injuries during Saturday's 34-20 win over Syracuse.

Lakers@Celtics 8 p.m. [TNT] No Andrew Bynum (pictured with crutches), no problem. At least when the Lakers played the Knicks - though it always helps to get 61 points from Kobe Bryant. I'm going out on a limb and predicting Bryant doesn't get 61 against Boston. Which reminds me of how "Hot Rod" Hundley used to talk about the time he and Elgin Baylor combined for 73 points - Hundley scored two of them.

It all began a couple of years ago in Washington, when Steven Saleh called up Craig Kraft, an artist who makes sculptures using light, and asked him to make a pair of neon crutches.Out of that grew "Light as a Helping Hand," the exhibit now on view at the new Merrick School of Business building at the University of Baltimore. It's a show that uses light to address communities with special needs -- among them the sight- and hearing-impaired, people with seasonal affective disorder and people with AIDS.

Five way-cool dudes, fedoras lowered to their eyebrows, shuffle in sync onto the dance floor as the theme from "Mission: Impossible" blares. After several impressive leaps and splits, they step dance and clap with military precision, then file into a straight line. Marching in place, they form the letters B-A-S-A-C with their arms and finish their dance with a thunderous cheer. "Diagnosis: Dance Abilities!" the quintet yells in unison. These guys, all participants in The League for People with Disabilities Career Services program, have often heard much different assessments of their abilities.

The holiday spirit seems to have evaporated this week from people who are not handicapped usurping handicapped parking spaces! I am a nurse who has had recent ankle surgery and am on crutches with limited weight-bearing, yet I have been unable to find a single handicapped parking space in Towson Town Center Mall or Cranbrook Shopping Center in Cockeysville. Instead, spaces are occupied by un-handicapped people who zoom into spaces right under my nose. Today I was leaning on my crutches, waiting for my husband in front of a handicapped parking space, where a non-handicapped woman sat in her parked SUV, talking on her cell phone.

O n land, Viki Anders has some trouble getting around. She walks with crutches, the result of a foot injury and a subsequent condition called complex regional pain syndrome. But in the water, she swims like a dolphin. Early Sunday, a few days shy of her 60th birthday, Anders eased herself into the pool at the McDonogh School and swam the butterfly for 1,500 meters, almost a mile. She did it to raise money for the Johns Hopkins Patient and Family Fund. It assists needy cancer patients and their families with expenses not covered by insurance during their treatment.

PRAISEWORTHY ESSAYEditor: Please pass on to Mr. Chester Wickwire my congratulations for and sincere appreciation of his praiseworthy essay, "In Praise of Crutches" [Nov. 7].His use of understated irony was a most effective vehicle in relating the story of his life, which has been considerably inconvenienced but by no means stymied by paralysis. Implicit in his story is not a sense of bitterness or resignation but a profound acceptance of the import of what a man once told him, "Everyone is handicapped in some way and needs a crutch."

NEW YORK -- Dennis Byrd steadied himself on his crutches at the doorway of the conference room at Mount Sinai Hospital yesterday afternoon. He stood there for a moment -- flanked by his wife, Angela, and his therapists -- to gather his nerves. Then, leaning on his crutches, Byrd gingerly put one foot in front of the other and walked the 15 feet to a chair in the front of the room to take his seat next to his wife.The scene held the wonderment of Neil Armstrong's walking on the moon. It embodied the joy of a baby's first step.
