    I'd leave earlier, and enjoy every step.

      It is amazing what a C 6-7 injury is able to do for him or herself following intensive physical therapy. Hard to know how much serious long term exercising is affecting outcomes. The exercising is a privilege and a pathway. Do you know if patients in the studies are working while participating?
      It woud be tough to work unless you did it from home. The trial lasts 6 months.

        Working from home is already possible. The issue will be scheduling hours. Is anyone factoring working quads/paras into the equation? It would be a shame if the folks that have found work and are managing some type of work are unable to sustain work if they seek treatment. Hard to pay without insurance and it would be unfortunate not to use insurance as often as possible to allow those who aren't currently working to receive other funding. Not sure many folks this might affect?

          I have been told by Stemcyte that they will only allow Californian's to donate to public banks in Southern part of the state.

            Jim, I sent you email and maybe a PM. Not sure if I did the PM correctly. Thanks for checking!

                      Luna, the Newsletter Sparky is refererring to is a hard copy mailing. He can scan/post it if he wants. Fla mail is slow though! I have been out from work for surgery/recovery. Last I heard, Feb was the most recent start date.

                          One thing that still bothers me in the back of my head is that I believe it was stated that the patients could technically walk but couldn't lift their legs from a lying position, I admittedly might have that wrong or things have changed since then, either way, when can I get further clarification on this

                            Second to last page in the ChinaSCInet thread it's kind of touched on.

                              post 2789,thanks Barrington.
                              I believe in this trial but I admit that it is with a little reserved caution, but if it is ever confirmed that patients that couldn't move or lift their legs prior to treatment are able to after treatment, that pretty much would cement it for me
