    If only it were as easy as making the people who are able to come up with the cure to do it. Unfortunately for us, the cure is very elusive.

    Very well said, manouli. vbmenu_register("postmenu_493739", true); Your preachin' to the choir, though. Now we have to get that and all of the other information out to the general public. "Rally Cry" September is National SCI Month, so let's get movin'.

    Thats the problem no one cares until it happens to them. I can't believe SCI research isn't the top charity for the NFL & College Football.

    Manouli - big mistake on one aspect - money.

    Yes, the country may have it but its not being allocated to the problem. If it was we'd be cured.

    There are a few things that happen every 41 minutes, but here are a some sites that state that fact for SCIs. I think it's a calculation based on the number of 11,ooo new injuries anually.

    How true Chris. We are not the priority. We have to find way to tell them off so we can be. I guess we are not rich or famous to do that. Only in elections time we might get some attention.
