Thread: Complete High Quad Perspective

    I agree with Grammy. We need to attack from all sides. If I had the choice of walking or making it a little easier for you guys; without hesitation, I'd pick help the higher injuries first.

    Unfortunately NO. No one will accept me since i'm a walking incomplete with a CERVICAL 4-5 injury. But hope lies in what Dr Young, Dr Davies, InVivo, Stem Cells Inc, Dr Silver. I'm pretty sure we will see a few other Drs or companies announcing clinical trials this year.

    High level SCI are the forgotten minorities even in the SCI world.
    I'm not sure if because less survive or are seen and heard from or if the injury is too profound to tackle.
