The public is invited to join in the Walk and Wheel event, Saturday May 3 starting at 10 a.m. from Ceal Tingley Park.
Our goal is singular and that is a cure and nothing short of it. We hope people can find the time to come out and do the river front trail with us, meet some new people or bring along an old friend or family member. We will have free refreshments available.
At this time it is necessary to thank all the businesses, employees of businesses and the general public that have donated to this cause in the past; your generosity and continued support and belief in our cause is very much appreciated.
Research has come along way and continues to move forward. The hope, as it should be for all charitable groups, is to find an end to a problem and shut down.
As you are all aware, life has many challenges and in the case of spinal cord injury, of which I’m familiar, my hope is for those that are not yet injured to never have to live a life of immobility and of non-voluntary body control. Injuries will continue to take place, but with a cure life should be able to continue as was the case before injury.
When the time comes for human trials there will not be a shortage of people willing to take part, so pressure is on neurosurgeons to learn all that research has provided and to take the next step and try a non-invasive surgical technique with regards to the spinal cord.
lt is not an easy task but one that must be taken. Surgeons are taking a good look at the research that has been done.
Dr. Ann Parr, a Canadian-trained neurosurgeon working at the University of Minnesota, has assembled a team to help work out a solution and do their part in bringing about a cure.
Please consider helping us out by getting a pledge sheet so this work continue or by making a donation to the Quesnel Chapter of the Spinal Cord Society.
Feel free to give me a call any time at 250-992-1505(w) or 250-992-5996(h).
lt would be great to see lots of people join us at the Walk and Wheel.
Remember all are welcomed.
