Or this one... to CHANGE your life.
This symbol is NOW.
This symbol stands for curing paralysis.
Its genesis began in 1978 where it heralded a new era. Its originators saw that medicine was only offering them endless “care”, with little thought of or hope for a cure. They realized the only way to end their immobilization was to lead the way themselves. Those who wanted a cure organized into a volunteer, self-help group called the Spinal Cord Society.
Then, they began to change perceptions.
SCS ignored the skeptics and the critics. They persevered when other disability groups said a cure was impossible. They helped pioneer chronic injury cure research. SCS was always well ahead of its time in bringing cure research forward---to where it is today.
Other similar groups have since seen the possibility of cure, but while they focus mainly on acute repairs and access issues, SCS has always stayed true to it‘s founding roots even if, at times, that has been the more difficult road. That’s because “Chronic Injury to CURE” means we concentrate solely on our goal of a complete cure for chronic, adult spinal cord injury.
