What is SCI Awareness Day?


A COLLABORATION OF MASSACHUSETTS REHABILITATION FACILITIES, CONSUMER ORGANIZATIONS, LEGISLATORS, POLICY MAKERS, AND ADVOCATES WORKING TOWARD A COMMON GOAL TO INCREASE FUNDING AVAILABLE FOR SPINAL CORD INJURY CURE RESEARCH IN MASSACHUSETTS.

The Spinal Cord Injury Fund was established in 2004 to provide funding opportunities for SCI research in Massachusetts. To date over three million dollars has been allocated to this fund.

The Thomas Kennedy SCI Research to a Cure Trust Fund Bill (S-2019) was signed by Governor Charlie Baker on November 6, 2015.

Thank you to everyone who supported the cause with testimony, letters, calls, and attendance at the SCI Awareness Day. Senator Marc Pacheco and Representative Haddad were key legislators in this success.




Research and investigation into spinal cord injuries is happening at many institutions all over the country and all over the world. This is a complex problem and the solutions will take many forms before cure: stem cell, bridging, physical therapy, umbilical cord blood, cethrin, lithium and electrical stimulation to name a few,”

Dr. Eric Ruby, MWA
