One or two clicks to cure paralysis
A very important bill, The Regenerative Medicine Promotion Act of 2011, (http://stemcellsandatombombs.blogspot.com/p/regenerative-medicine-promotion-act.html for more information about this bill) has been introduced to the US House of Representatives and now the aim is to also get this bill introduced in the American Senate. Remember, regenerative medicine is the stuff that will get people out of their chairs and walking again!
To do this the bill must have sponsors so it can be introduced. This bill already has one sponsor, Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer, but we need a Republican senator to also sponsor it or it won't get anywhere.
To this end Unite2Fight Paralysis (a grassroots organization dedicated to finding a cure for paralysis - see www.U2FP.org) is sponsoring a face to face lobbying session in Washington on 18 October as part of their Working2Walk conference.
We can't all be there to help in their efforts but you too can help inspire some Republican senators to sponsor this bill by sending the email below. To let them know that people inside and outside of America are looking to the USA for leadership in this very important matter - curing paralysis and a host of other conditions and diseases.
Please send a message to the following US Senators.
The Honorable Mark Kirk (Illinois)
The Honorable Scott Brown (Massachusetts)
The Honorable Susan Collins (Maine)
The Honorable Olympia Snowe (Maine)
This campaign has ended.
