AN OPPORTUNITY TO SAY WE WANT A CURE!

The UK’s Stoke Mandeville Spinal Foundation (SMSF) is conducting a priority setting survey, open to individuals living with SCI and also families, carers, health and social care professionals.  This is a rare opportunity for our pro-cure voices to be heard and it’s vital that the results of this survey deliver a realistic and honest view of our desires and needs.

Surveys often ask us to prioritise our needs: “Do we want bowel and bladder? Is hand function the most important thing?” What surveys have failed to do is understand the UNDERLYING causes to all our problems: damage to the spinal cord.

 damageSo with this survey, we encourage you not to list your priorities and not to ask for a solution to symptoms but to ask a simple question:

HOW CAN WE REPAIR THE CHRONICALLY DAMAGED SPINAL CORD TO RESTORE FUNCTION?”

Care initiatives for individuals with SCI have limitations. No matter how many carers you have, how big your financial compensation package is, how light your wheelchair is, how many accessible shops and restaurants there are, how much rehabilitation is available to you, how many incontinence products available to you and how much assistive technology is available – it cannot ever compare with the gains in health, independence and wellbeing resulting from the return of function.

The repair of the chronically damaged spinal cord is the ultimate form of Quality of Life for the SCI Community!

The Cure Girls strongly urge you to take part in this survey and more importantly, ask the right question:

HOW CAN WE REPAIR THE CHRONICALLY DAMAGED SPINAL CORD TO RESTORE FUNCTION?”

 The survey is here.
