This year SPINALpedia was one of the sponsors of W2W. Josh Basile, a quadriplegic and spinal cord injury research advocate is a lawyer from Bethesda. His speech “Advocating with Your Body and Mind” was on the importance of keeping our bodies healthy so they’re ready for possible therapies.
He also discussed the importance of going out in public so we are seen (the more the public sees us, the more they are aware of spinal cord injuries and the need for research). His advocacy work over the last ten years since his injury has been highly admired.

Without your valuable support of Unite 2 Fight Paralysis volunteers and your generous donations directed to the Working 2 Walk Video Library, the annual symposium video presentations could not be made possible for the paralysis community. Thank you for your generous support in supplying this educational material for research and advocacy to cure paralysis.
