Do you believe that there will be a cure for spinal cord injury one day?
Of course. I can’t judge from a medical point of view, but I do hope so with all my heart. I can't
imagine what it would be like to not be able to walk anymore. If researchers keep working so hard,
I’m positive it will be someday possible.
