    I was disappointed that Dr Michael Rathbone was speaking in Windsor on the same day I would find myself in Toronto for surgery consult with an Orthopaedic Surgeon. He's 'a big researcher' in Ontario at least. I believe he works out of Hamilton.

    But I see he's also speaking the next day in London .. yet another 2hr trip .. with two other speakers, one on wounds I'd especially like to hear. I'll bring what info I gather if I make it ... these are put on by the Canadian Paraplegic Association (yay they're changing towards cure related thinking!!!) Hope to hear good news.

    *** This is a good time for those in Quebec, the Maritimes and the Territories to bother their MP's about matching Alberta, Ontario and BC in $10,000,000+ towards the Rick Hansen Foundation because of the upcoming federal election!

      After a period of perhaps 4 years of clinical trial doldrums, there are finally some clinical trials coming on line, both in the United States and in China. We need many more, however. Not every clinical trial will be successful.

      It is not unlike rolling a dice in a casino. The only difference is that if anybody wins, everybody wins.

      Wise.
      You say 4 years trial's what date did it star or when is going to star ?

        Mr. Mcadam,

        If I were you I'd contact the site administrators and get them to change your user name, it's not a good idea to have your personal email address on public display.

          Keith,

          Be brave! Hope dies with us!..Just don't spent much time dwelling on it, like I did in first couple years!...Take everything, even Chairman Young tells you., not as dogma..If you do-you will be waisting valuable life time....Many quads before me (I'm 13 years post), will agree......Was on numerous forums, before Wise got secure funding for this one...Yup.....Its hard to adjust...But as my late Dad always said-Take it easy-but Take it!

          Hope it might help you? If not its ok...with me or my inner peace

            So what is somebody's newest prediction on how much longer?
            There are many theories regarding 2012 ex. The Mayan calendar ends. (said to be mor accurate then our own)
            Every Generation Has thier upcomming End of the World date theories/predictions.
            .....But, One day, one of those End of the World Predictions will come true ..

              jah! maybe every black hole in the universe once was a civilization that couldn't resist the temptation of building a large particle generator

              (The Mayan Calender doesn't exactly "end" 2012 it's more complex than that)

              Don't ask what clinical trials can do for you, ask what you can do for clinical trials. (Ox)

                  Patricks,
                  It's interesting to debate this issue. I could be mistaken; but I believe the ending of the Mayan calendar coincides with a phenomena that occurs very rarely,"more then 100,000 years". It is a period of time "Time being relevant" when there is a particular alignment of our Sun, the planets and the center of our galaxies. At this time no one knows what, if anything at all will occur. It's possible the Mayan's who were a very advanced civilization have simply ended their calendar due to the relevance of a new period of time beginning with this phenomena. I believe the date is 12-21-2012. Any way if we are still around lets send an email the next day and have a laugh about it.

                      You people are amazing

                      I have been reading some posts and to be frank have seen such amazing intelligence, fortitude and courage beyond my wildest dreams. I highly admire you all and my little problem seems so insignificant.
                      Tell me how I can lobby for stem cell research...tell me how I can try to help..I can be persistent.

                          Good advice, Leo

                          Christopher got me involved this summer into Rick Hansen foundation fund raising event...I've met a bunch of nice people & became a member of para sailing club here in Montreal..

                          I do peek sometime in forums, but until cure will be available, try to live my life to fullest...Hobbies, ebay, coin club, dating etc....Find something interesting and occupying, beyond carecure...

                          Carecure sometime is like a black hole (no not that in naughty sense lol ) or Bermuda triangle sucking time and energy

                            I am going to do what I can, as I may be one in need more-so than I am today. I am grateful to have found this site...I am for real and mentally intact...and am not a devo whom I think have far greater problems mentally than any of us...physically is another issue with me as with you all. In fact I can't believe devos exist....(someone clued me in) Just so ya know.

                              Stemcell { Pipe Dream }

                              All this Techno Talk Stem cell therapy is something I can not afford
                              Prices like $7,000 per treatment in other countries to china for example etc... not including the money needed for the plane flight and expenditures

                              I'd do anything to give it a try

                              I live on a very low fixed income because of my situation and I remember one lady from some Stem cell place called me up saying Judy you only neeed to make some technical way of wording Fund raising thats it ! I remembered the term lol

                              I dont know how tofundraise Personally
                              Sadly life is Based on $ sighns and not Humanity
                              Stem cells and donated body tissue is something special and needed I still Freely do my donation to blood drives and yet no one would put me on a trial and people with incomplete or full or para , tetra plegia need hope and let our Dreams Prevail

                                Just read through this 2 year old thread. Max is gone, several members in this thread don't seem to post much, if at all, nowdays.

                                We're still hearing 5 more years . . . . . .

                                The more things change, the more they stay the same.
