    Let’s Start U.S. Clinical Trials Now!

    Greetings Fellow CareCure Members,

    I‘m Jim Bennett and I work at the W.M. Keck Center, Spinal Cord Injury Project, at Rutgers University. I am asking you to join me in launching spinal cord injury clinical trials in the United States!

    On March 17, 2009, The North American Spinal Cord Injury Network (NASCINet) was formed. This came at the conclusion of the First Investigator Meeting at University Medical Center Brackenridge in Austin, Texas. The goal of the network is to test promising therapies to restore function in people with chronic spinal cord injuries (SCI).

    We, the SCI Community, can and must support these trials by raising the needed funds. If we take an active role and work together, clinical trials for SCI will begin this year!

    I am building a network of recruiters, “The Clinical Trial Support Squad”, whose goal is to procure donations from 100 individuals and families. We will use social networking websites such as Facebook, MySpace and Twitter to reach potential donors.

    If you would like to join “The Clinical Trial Support Squad” and get these trials going now, email me- jimbenn@rci.rutgers.edu.

    Thank you! Jim

    More details on the trials are at http://nascinet.org

    Jim:

    Is there a way for people to mail in one dollar instead of using their credit card? Some people may prefer to send a check or money to the cause through the mail. Is this an option?

    By the way, I would suggest that several people donate a dollar and this could be sent in a single envelope. As DA points out, $5 donations would get to a million dollars faster.
