As Kelsey mentioned in her post last week, Barry Munro's talk at Working 2 Walk this past fall in Vancouver made a lasting impact on her. She wasn't the only one. Lot's of attendees told us how impactful Barry's presentation was. Check it out!
ABSTRACT: Barry Munro will share his journey of a quest for a cure that has been going on for 31 years, since his injury in 1987. He will share his experiences and comment on the attitudinal changes in the world in relation to finding a cure for spinal cord injuries. He will explore and look back on the chronology of events from Rick Hansen’s tour around the world and Christopher Reeve’s passion to find a cure, to the passing of a proverbial torch of cure now carried by U2FP and other organizations around the world. This will be the tale of history and the recommendations of a playbook for the future in continuing the quest to find a cure for paralysis.
