My name is Timothy A. Gallant and I am a Navy veteran and college graduate.  I am also a C5 quadriplegic after a car accident and poor hospital care left me with a 90% severed spinal cord.  Thank goodness for modern technology, namely voice activated word processing software

A few months ago, I began looking into ways to raise money to send myself overseas for stem cell treatments.  It turns out that I am not a good candidate for treatment due to the fact that my injury occurred almost 10 years ago.  This is what led me to my new mission.  In April 2007, I incorporated the Gallant Spinal Cord Injury Foundation, Inc.  which will be dedicated to raising money to send US spinal cord injury victims overseas to recieve non-embryonic stem cell treatments.  This is my first venture into the wide world of the internet and I am curious to see how my mission will be recieved.  If you would like more info on our Foundation or stem cell research in general check my page out.  thanks for reading, Tim.

Hi Tim,
I think it's a great idea. How has things been going for the Foundation? How many people have you been able to send for treatment, and has it been successful for them?

I think it's great that you are looking to help them, even though your own injury cannot be treated. I'm praying for you, that there will soon be a treatment for you that will work even if the stem cell can't. :)
