    Charity Dinner

    You can expect good food, wine & beer, raffles and a silent auction as well as a presentation by Dr. Keirstead. To meet him and have the opportunity to discuss your own concerns might be memorable. We always have a great time.

    Karen -- (the two of us have quite the creative screen names ).

    I have heard really good things about this annual event. Thank you so much for all of your hard work on it. I would love to attend, but alas, I'm in Minneapolis. I assume I can sponsor someone else's attendance or make a direct donation, correct?

    Thanks,

    Susan

    I think this is another great opportunity to listen directly from a researcher about research for SCI treatments. Good initiative.

    Don't waste your money people and apply your research dollars elsewhere. Keirstead is NOT interested in chronic SCI

    That is not correct. And what do you base it upon?

    Talking Charity Dinner - Exciting news from Dr. Keirstead.

    The dinner was a success - the presentation was the most exciting that I have heard to date for CHRONIC injuries!!!
    Funding can be difficult to obtain in high risk/unproven areas of research. That is the void that Research for Cure tries to fill for Dr. Keirstead and the Reeve-Irvine Research Center. Although our contributions are small, they are restriction free, allowing scientific freedom to pursue promising but high-risk research.
    I need this week to perform the administrative tasks of our event. With the help of Don Reed, who was, of course, in attendance, we hope to put together a brief account of the highlights of Dr. Keirstead's presentation.
    I believe that Dr. Keirstead and the Center are one of the leaders on the cutting edge of SCI cure research. However, as he is the first to point out, credit must be given to collaboration between scientists - a necessity to accelerate cures.
    Smiling because I can finally see a light at the end of the tunnel,

    Karen M. Is there someway you can get in contact with Keirstead and ask him if he has a transcript of his lecture and ask him if you can post it. And if he does not have one he might be so kind and do a short write-up? Thanks.
