At the Rally for the Cure last week, the wife of a good friend with spinal cord injury came and asked if I would speak to her children who have been seeing all these things on television suggesting that a cure for spinal cord injury is coming and that they are expecting their father to walk. She asked if I would speak to the children and explain to them what this means.

I was wondering what people are telling their children concerning the cure and what their responses have been. Will they understand or become disappointed if it doesn't happen right away? How have you handled this situation?
