Will Reeve shares his father's dream

Posted by Reeve Staff in Daily Dose on July 20, 2016 # Research, Fundraising, Reeve Family

When Will Reeve presented to a packed room at the SALT conference in Las Vegas, he invoked his father's words, "It comes down to us. We have the power to make an enormous difference."

During the presentation, Will highlighted the unprecedented momentum occurring in spinal cord research and how we are moving closer to his dad's dream, a world of empty wheelchairs.

When discussing the source of this innovation surge, he singled out the catalyst...the power of technology.

That is why we are committed to advancing innovations like epidural stimulation. Never before has the field showed so much promise thanks to the limitless potential of technology.

Will was joined by Dustin Shillcox who shared his experience as the fourth participant in the initial epidural stimulation study and the importance of The Big Idea.

As longtime champions of the Reeve Foundation, we wanted to share this exclusive video of Will Reeve and Dustin Shillcox on the SALT stage.

Make sure to watch the full video and see why they earned a standing ovation at the end of their presentation.

As Will says, "This is the beginning of the end of paralysis." Together, we have a chance to make an enormous difference with every gift moving us closer to a world of empty wheelchairs.

Please #JoinReeve and donate today.

Note: There are companies and clinics in other parts of the world that are falsely advertising epidural stimulation treatments and may pose a danger to the paralysis community. Please read the Reeve Foundation's statement on off-shore stimulation treatments.
