When I was originally injured, I was told that spinal cord injuries would more than likely be cured in ten years. Well, it's been about eight and a half years and not a heck of a lot has happened. In fact, I recently read an article where they said that they expect a cure in 10-15 years. What have they been doing for the last eight years?
I remember talking to a guy while I was living at Courage Center who told me that he had been injured for 40 years, and they had been talking about a cure ever since his injury. This guy (I forget his name) said that he spent most of his life waiting for a cure. At that point he was convinced that he had spent his entire life waiting for something that he would never see in his lifetime.
