Spinal Cord Injury Research Symposium

This year's Spinal Cord Injury Research Symposium is coming up. For those of you who live in Minnesota, this is a great way to learn about all of the research being done to help cure paralysis. This is the fourth year that Morton Cure Paralysis Fund has put on this event and the third year that I have been on the planning committee helping to put everything together. I will definitely be there.

Here is what the flyer for the event says:

Ms. Becky Peters, President, Morton Cure Paralysis Fund, believes that through increased funding for research a cure for paralysis will be found and her dream of walking will come true. Her message of hope and advocacy is inspiring.

Not this year. I did it two years ago, so I probably won't do it again.
