“The Christopher and Dana 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. In 1995, when Christopher Reeve was injured, the American Paralysis Association (APA) was one of the first places that he and Dana turned to. Christopher had formed his own foundation, but in 1999, they came together as the Christopher Reeve Foundation. Today, the Foundation is recognized as the premier spinal cord injury research organization throughout the world. Through the Reeve Foundation’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.”
