Go Forward



I had to take a minute here to show support for my hero, Christopher Reeve. His passing, and subsequently the death of his wife Dana, effected me profoundly. They were both truly inspiring in their dedication. Heres what their foundation has to say, in their own words...

"Mission: The Christopher Reeve Foundation is dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research, and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy.
Background: The roots of CRF began in the early 1980's, when several small family foundations from around the country banded together to create the American Paralysis Association. These pioneers refused to accept the long-standing dogma that once damaged, the injured spinal cord could never be repaired.
Soon after his spinal cord injury in 1995, Christopher sought out the American Paralysis Association. Impressed and excited with the extraordinary research we were funding, Christopher made the decision to form an affiliation that eventually led to the merger and creation of the Christopher Reeve Foundation. His passion for research and belief in our methodology to develop treatments and cures was why he felt so compelled to join forces with us. Today, through CRF's persistence and promise, neuroscientists around the world agree that repairing the damaged spinal cord is not a question of if, but a question of when.
With the passing in 2004 of its Chairman and namesake, the Christopher Reeve Foundation (CRF) stands at an acute crossroads. We are charged with continuing his legacy and growing the momentum, which he so ardently created. We take on the responsibility of all those who have invested in us to succeed.
Christopher's life brought visibility to a condition which had often been invisible. It is his legacy and challenge to us all to keep up the pace of the work he championed."
