Panel: Tommy, Karim, Dale, David

David is going through a quick recap of what has been presented since lunch. He says he’d like to open this by talking about funding, especially as it relates to talking about the broken system for paying for rehab.

Thanks, Matthew for the invitation to be here today. I’d like to remind you of the Power of One. We’re all here today because of Marilyn Smith. Her son Noah was injured in 2003, and her response to that is why we’re here. (Applause, amen.) Sarah, Luke, Kylie, James (he shows their pictures, along with... Continue Reading →

Matt: Here's a story for you. U2FP used to have a board member with a C7 injury. His name was Dave, and he was a dedicated quad rugby player. He and I used to talk about how hard it was for him to get his rugby friends to care about research. The light came on... Continue Reading →

Justin Brown, MD

The bladder is a very complex system … We look at this (SCI research) as a sort of buffet; there’s lots of things that can help right now. I have patients coming in who think they want to wait for the stem cell treatment that will get them tap dancing, but from my perspective they’re... Continue Reading →
