Spinal Cord Injury cure community survey - Part I

Ninety-nine members of the Spinal Cord Injury community took their time to answer this year’s survey. While not a huge number, it is similar in size to 2011, and I always must remind myself that we are not a huge community.

After I finish writing part II, I will make all the data available, but I am going to spend a few minutes looking at what I consider to be the most interesting results. You may see something that I missed, so please feel free to write to me and point it out.

Do you believe that a cure for SCI is necessary so that people living with SCI can have an improved quality of life and not have to suffer secondary complications?

People aren’t fooling themselves. Even with all the progress science has made in reducing secondary complications and improving quality of life for those of us in chairs, over 90% of respondents believe that CURE is a necessity to answering these issues.

Spinal cord injury community survey - less than five minutes

Back in 2010, I conducted a survey into the SCI community and the feeling around cure and their own cure activity. Since that time, at lot has changed (a lot more trials), and nothing has changed (there still isn't a cure).

If you have five minutes, it would be great if you could help with this survey.


  • It may get you more involved in a cure for spinal cord injury.
  • It may give you some ideas for how to participate.
  • You may give others some ideas on how to get more people to participate.

I have been in touch with different groups involved in cure, and they are interested to know your opinions.

At the end of the survey, there is an optional chance to leave your name for more information.

Thanks for taking the time.

Still here in 2018!

I hope that you and your friends and families all had a wonderful new year's holidays.

Getting back to work now and just like you, I'm still trying to catch up. I'm a little late getting back to the site, but it's not forgotten.

Actually, over the holidays, I had a chance to make a few long anticipated changes to the site that you may or may not notice.
  • The site is now at www.StemCellsandAtomBombs.org and it's the window to all the language versions.
  • The language versions are all at their own subdomains:

Wishing you all a "Cureful" New Year!

As we're about to start 2018, I'd like to send you all a quick message saying thank you for all your support over the years. This blog has had it's ups and downs, mostly based on my health, but I thank the regular readers for your encouragement over the years.

The blog started in 2010 and even though I'm still writing about the search for a cure for paralysis caused by spinal cord injury and I am still hopeful that a cure will be found. Some say that even if a cure can't help them because they've been injured for so long, they hope that it will help others. This is very  noble, but while I want a cure for all, I still have hope that I too will be included in this cure.
