About Wings for Life:
The Wings for Life Spinal Cord Research private foundation has dedicated itself to an ambitious goal: Making spinal paralysis curable.
The accident hazard is ubiquitous and can by no means only be ascribed to extreme sports. Every year, about 130,000 people suffer a severe spinal cord injury, whereof more than the half results from accidents in road traffic.
Thus, Wings for Life is devoted to the regeneration and cure of the injured spinal cord, investing its entire energy to make this vision come true. Considerable findings in animal experiments dispel any doubts about the feasibility of this ambitious project. However, the break through in human medicine could not yet be achieved. Every donation represents an important step in order to finance the best research projects in the long run. Further Information on: www.wingsforlife.com
