I know this question was asked before, but it did not specify what kind of injury voters had. There is a very big difference between being a quadriplegic and a paraplegic. I believe the expectations of a cure between the 2 vary greatly. When I paraplegic thinks of a cure, they think of walking. When a quadriplegic thinks of a cure, they think of a minimum of at least being able to breathe on their own all the way to just being able to have full upper body strength. Me being a quad, for a cure all I really want is my upper body strength and finger dexterity to be back to normal. I am doing this pull purely out of curiosity. I know a full recovery for everyone would be wonderful, but for me, I would trade anything I have just to be a paraplegic.
