    Question for Rick Hansen:

    Why him or someone of his org isn't attending? They apparently are interested in curing SCI from what I read on the web...

    ..but I see Barbara Turnbull Foundation for Spinal Cord Research is attending.

    Anyway if someone living in Toronto could go it should be interesting.

    Any Canadians or other members of CC have been there?

    Patient advocates like my son Roman Reed are the emotional muscle behind research for cure. It is not easy for a paralyzed person to travel, but he will be there, listening and learning, and speaking.

    Because there will be funding fights ahead, both nationally, and in every state.

    When a politician says, “We can’t afford to fund the research”—someone must be there to say: “We cannot afford NOT to fund the research—and here’s why.” That someone is us. If it is just the scientists talking, it is all too easy for politicians to ignore them.
