3.2. Cure Paralysis Now Advocacy Group
CureAdvocacy is a grassroots organization that believes a cure for paralysis can be achieved in this decade and has vowed to carry and fill a void that occurred following the death of Christopher Reeve.
CureAdvocacy is a grassroots organization that believes a cure for paralysis can be achieved in this decade. Our mission is to:
Educate the public about the cruel realities of living with paralysis
Deliver the message that paralysis strikes randomly and without warning, robbing its victims of abilities and dreams in a split second
Raise public awareness of viable cure options
Promote the cure message with a variety of legislative and media outreach strategies
Why Cure Advocacy? Without activism:
The United States would still be under British rule;
African Americans would still live in slavery's chains.
Women would not have the right to vote.
People with Disabilities would still be institutionalized.
Rights and Freedoms are won through activism. The time is NOW to fight for:
The Paralyzed Community's Bill of Rights
We hold these truths to be self-evident:
All humans are created equal and are entitled to certain unalienable Rights, including Life, Liberty, Independence and the pursuit of Happiness;
Governments are instituted among humankind to secure these rights, and if they fail, it is the Right of the people to alter or abolish such Governments in order to effect Safety and Happiness;
Spinal Cord Injury robs its victims of Liberty and Independence; the Search for a Cure is their Pursuit of Happiness.
