Update - February 20

From Jennifer: "We want to continue to thank everyone for kind thoughts and actions. We are grateful for the many referrals and forwards about state of the art treatments. Thanks to all of you who have mentioned The Miami Project. We have talked with them and they are sending information about their research programs for children. We have also been in touch with the Christopher Reeve Foundation, U C Irvine, Rutgers University, BioEden's Stem Cell program and Lazer Treatments. Because Chris is 10 years old several people feel that during his lifetime there will be significant advancements. We are responsibly investigating these potential treatments. We must also however learn how to function on a daily basis upon discharge from the hospital. Currently we are dealing with pain management for the neuropathic pain Chris is experiencing. It is very real to him and we want him to be comforted. We are grateful to our Chiropractor/acupuncturist/massage therapist who visits Chris. He has much less pain following one of her massages/treatments. Thank you Beth Marx!!"
