    For many AB, with the sight of a reg wheelchair is one of "They just cant walk, no big deal"
    Finding someone who is willing to be the 'poster' person is not easy - anyone with a high injury volunteering?

    It would be good to have this up and running on Monday. We can temporarily use either the graphic or perhaps the wheelie on the hill (still trying to get permission for this). It would be a shame to hold things up. So please if anyone has the skill to do the pile of wheelchairs, or wants to send a photo of themselves, can you do it before Monday???

    Thanks.

        Results: The incidence of death in the spinal cord injured, from septicaemia, pneumonia and influenza, diseases of the urinary uystem and suicide, are significantly higher than in the general population. The findings confirm variations in potentially treatable causes of death depending on neurological impairment, attained age and duration since injury. Unlike septicaemia and pneumonia, which have shown a significant reduction since 1980, the death rate for suicide alone has risen.
        Conclusion: This analysis identified complications which affect mortality and morbidity in patients suffering from the effects of SCI.
        Spinal Cord (2000) 38, 604-610.
        1. Some need to fix that.

              The site is live and running

              ok, the site is up and running. One hiccup is that the letter does not appear on the same page, but can be opened separately. Have asked for it to be put on same page but it may take a while; so for the moment this is it:

              http://www.thepetitionsite.com/2/sig...-cord-research


              and here is the Facebook page:

              http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=39523859441


              Please start using both and get the signatures flowing!
              Changes can always be made if any of you spot something that could be better. Also anyone who wants to start another Facebook page in a different language is more than welcome to do so as long as the petition site link is there so that all signatures end up in the same place.
