"Go Forward"

I got a really nice gift for my B-day Saturday. The Christopher Reeve Foundation has a thing going where you get a really nice dogtag and keychain of the superman symbol and the foundations motto "Go Forward" for donating to the cause of spinal cord research and treatment.
Yall should check it out when you get a chance. just google Go Forward.
Thanks,
B
P.S. If this is in violation of RC laws please remove it, although I really hope it isn't.

T1 and T7. Man, its incredible that he made it through that. I have two friends with partial paralysis and their both adjusted well to their status. I believe one was a T12 and my best friend's are L4 and L5. Its gonna be tough on him with the physical therapy ahead but he'll be better for it. My friend Chris (L4, L5) was told he would never walk and he's been using one crutch to get around now for many years. Walking just fine (different center of balance so its not perfect but it an't stopping him) and he and his wife recently had a baby. Now that one was special cause that wasn't suposed to happen either!
