This man did so much for spinal chord injury research. He was amazing. He offered up himself in most cases as a human guinea pig to test new ideas. I can only hope that he set up some sort of foundation to keep it all going.

a subject that is a touchy one...i will say that this individual is far braver than i would have been if i had to experience such a fate; i would have asked for death, without question..

hmmm.. --;

his bravery, to endure such hardship, has earned my respect for him...may his next existence be blessed with good fortune & health..

Damn...that's such sad news...especially since he never got to walk again...I remember watching those superman movies when I was younger, and wishing to be just like that. So I feel pretty down after finding out that he passed away. Here's to you in heaven Christopher Reeve... toast.gif
