ÂThere are doctors, researchers and scientists around the world that work around the clock working on this very important research who need our financial support to keep their research projects going,Â said McConnell. ÂChristopher Reeve was a great inspiration to one and all and now it is up to the members of the international media to continue his work by continuing the global awareness of the work being done in the fields of spinal cord injury research and spinal regeneration research.Â
