Thread: Send a question to the new CEO of Rick Hansen Foundation

  1. #1

    Send a question to the new CEO of Rick Hansen Foundation

    You can send your email by visiting: http://stemcellsandatombombs.blogspo...tions-new.html

    We often argue on this site about the amount of money and attention given to central nervous system regeneration by Rick Hansen Foundation (RHF) and its offshoots Rick Hansen Institute and ICORD.

    We argue, but we often don't have the facts we need to ever end the discussion and move on. So today I have set it up so you can ask Mr. Art Reitmayer, the new CEO of RHF, a direct question as well as congratulate him on his appointment and RHF's 25 year anniversary.

    The question is:
    What percentage of funds from RHF go directly to a cure for spinal cord injury?

    You can go here to send the email: http://stemcellsandatombombs.blogspo...tions-new.html

    The more that ask, the better chance at an answer so we know where we stand (pun intended).

    Please pass it along to your friends and urge them to send this question.

    Done.

    I hope the new CEO of RHF will come up with an honest an transparent answer.

    I also hope that even the people that have a "divine rispect" for Rick Hansen will send the letter too. It is a ligitimate and respectfull question that people with SCI have the right to ask in my opinion.

    I filled out the form and added my comments. Thank you for providing the list from the Rick Hansen Foundation for me to review. It was very helpful and I was able to complete it within just a minute or two.

    Awesome. Insta-did it
    Don't ask what clinical trials can do for you, ask what you can do for clinical trials.
