On the eve of National Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month, The Buoniconti Fund is launching its largest effort designed to challenge people across the country to help us find a cure for paralysis.
The goal of the campaign is to ask “Will You Stand Up For Those Who Can’t?” The intent is to create a national conversation about the devastation of paralysis and to bring this condition to the forefront of public awareness. Most people in the United States and around the world have never met someone who is spinal cord injured let alone contemplate what life must be like for the person paralyzed and their family members. I am personally asking you, will you stand up for those who can’t and do one or more of the following?
- Replace your Facebook profile picture with our logo, post our video on your wall letting people know that September is National SCI Awareness Month and like our Facebook page.
- Email and Tweet your friends and family to create a forum and discussion about why finding a cure for paralysis is important to you.
Every 48 minutes, another person in the United States will become paralyzed. That is simply unacceptable. Each of us must promise to do something to help create a national conversation about what it means to be paralyzed and the urgent need to find this cure.
So please, help us spread the message that September is National Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month. Let’s join together to raise the money to fund this cure!
