As a woman with an incomplete spinal cord injury, I am so glad to see that this treatment is occurring. I realize that there is uncertainty, but I believe it outweighs what some are facing right now. As tough as life is with my incomplete spinal cord injury, it's nothing compared to what some face. I hope this research finds a cure or several avenues for a cure. I know we are all ready.
