I love U2FP. I hope that you'll 'like' them on facebook

Unite2FightParalysis. This was the group that inspired me to get involved in the fight to cure paralysis. Can you imagine how they motivated me?

Just look at their name.

I was paralyzed and laying in a hospital bed and their name came shouting out at me.


While the rest of the world was getting me ready for my life sentence in the chair, there was a group that believed that you could FIGHT paralysis by UNITING.

Well, this appealed to me on three fronts.

PARALYSIS: Well, I was paralyzed.
FIGHT: I believe that this is what we must do to solve most problems.
UNITE: Fit in perfectly with my trade union background.

As of 21 Feb.
So, I appeal to you to 'like' them on facebook. They want five hundred likes by the end of this month.

While you're at it: don't forget to like my blog's facebook page, too.
