    SASKATCHEWAN PARTNERS WITH RICK HANSEN INSTITUTE TO LEAD IN FUNDING FOR DISABILITY INITIATIVE

    Saskatchewan is taking a leadership role in Canada in the areas of spinal cord injury research and disability funding with the commitment by the provincial government of more than $4.3 million for a comprehensive five-year Saskatchewan-based initiative, in partnership with the national Rick Hansen Institute.

    Saskatchewan's Rick Hansen Institute Initiative is a group of projects that will enhance the lives of Saskatchewan people with disabilities. The projects will also help commemorate the 25th Anniversary of Rick Hansen's Man in Motion World Tour ...

    Hey Linny!

    ...hmmm... if you take some time to read the article you will see there is no money directed to any kind of research to get us out of w-c
    So this post should not be in the cure forum I guess

    I also guess you have seen my comment on Rick FB page...

    I'm sorry; I don't have skype!

    What if media started throwing around the word, cure? Would they be scoffed at? Would money pour in? Or would the taxpayers demand a refund for outrageous allegations?

    I watched an interesting documentary last week. In order to affect change you need:

    1) the media
    2) money
    3) people/support

    We have very little of 2 and 3. Absolutely none of 1. Perhaps that's where pressure needs to be applied? Just throwing that out there ...

    Cure is not a word any sensible media organization would use at this point.
