WE BEL13VE IN RECOVERY.

BEL13VERS have already made it possible for 3 people living with paralysis to participate in an amazing paralysis recovery project.

Now we are raising funds for one more patient.

Your gift today will help make it possible for a 4th patient living with paralysis to participate in this amazing recovery opportunity.

Your gift will get us one step closer to making recovery possible for everyone living with paralysis.

That is Jered Chinnock pictured at right. 

In 2016 he became the first patient in a medical research project BEL13VE funded at Mayo Clinic.

Paralysis is no longer permanent.

In its most recent results (published in the September 2018 issue of the medical journal Nature Medicine), Mayo Clinic reports Jered was able to walk over ground using a front-wheeled walker. By the end of the study period, Jered used his entire body to transfer weight, maintain balance and propel forward. In his best session, Jered took a total of 331 steps and traveled 111 yards — about the length of a football field.

In the study, Jered’s spinal cord was stimulated by an implanted electrode, enabling neurons to receive the signal that he wanted to stand or step.  However, when stimulation was off, Jered remained paralyzed.

READ THE COMPLETE STUDY RESULTS & SEE VIDEO OF JERED'S PROGRESS.


Become a BEL13VER today.

Every gift helps advance paralysis recovery.

Two independent medical journals have now published the results of Jered’s progress.

Mayo Clinic is now the first medical center in the world to successfully replicate and validate the startling paralysis recovery results achieved by a research team at the University of Louisville in 2014.
