Dear China/USA/Norway/SCINet, 2017 is approaching and planning my new-years resolutions... I feel lazy logging in here in a daily basis for 5 years just hoping that one day good news will just pop up saying 'a cure is found'

Funding is an issue, what else a person or group of people like I with SCI can do to help push forward, speed up and make things happened?

what can be done to boost things up? Any guidance such as how to request to lift a ban, raise awareness... anything
