That means identifying what a cure for spinal cord injury really means," says Barry Munro, Chief Development Officer for ONF and the Chair of the Canadian Spinal Research Organization.
. In its initial years this conference emphasized education but in October 2016 the spotlight was on grassroots advocacy and every attendee, Barry included, was challenged to identify and commit to be involved. Talking about a cure for SCI is definitely out of the closet as far as CSRO and Munro are concerned. And now is the time for action to make the possible a reality. "We will be taking a more direct approach in our efforts to raise the profile and speak to the achievements of cure research initiatives in the context of restoring critical functions," he says. "We want CRSO to be the go-to Canadian organization supporting and encouraging cure advocates in Canada," he says. CSRO will launch a webinar series of short videos this spring each focusing on a cure-related research direction, project or possibility. Building momentum for the investment in cure research has also changed the research funding model. "There is a shift to Letters of Intent and a peer review awards process and follow-up much like the models used by government and pharmaceutical companies to fund research projects." And there are many others contributing to the conversation and providing support for advocacy efforts, says Barry. He points to the frank book "Don't Call it a Miracle" by author Kate Willette. She says the SCI cure isn't a miracle but represents effort and commitment to advocacy - a movement - by those with SCI and anyone who cares for and about them.
