As you probably know by now, one big part of Positive Thinking Day is to raise money for Reeve Foundation. This post is another of the inspirational videos from the Reeve Foundation.
Before we go to the video I wanted to share excerpt from Dr. Nicole Sundene's great Kitchen Table Medicine blog. She is one smart cookie and has a fabulous blog full of wonderful information. I appreciate her help in spreading the word about PTD and the Reeve Foundation.
Spinal cord injury research funded by the Reeve Foundation is imperative to more than just sufferers of traumatic injuries, it will likely be beneficial for those disabled by Multiple Sclerosis and Lou Gehrig’s Disease (Amyotrophic lateral Sclerosis). The accessory cells that hold bundles of nerve fibers together are irreparably damaged from both injury and autoimmune disease, and until scientists learn how to regrow these tissues we will not have a likely cure for spinal cord injury and the disabilities that result from MS and ALS. Stem cell research is vital for regrowing these tissues.
Without the Dana and Christopher Reeve Foundation, advanced research on these developments would not be possible. - Dr. Nicole Sundene.
Now yet another powerful video from the Reeve Foundation.
