Conquer Paralysis Now
Conquer Paralysis Now (CPN) is a leading authority on spinal cord injury (SCI) research and treatment. We are backed by an international coalition of medical doctors, research scientists and business leaders who share a singular goal: Finding a cure for paralysis. CPN started in 2000 as the Sam Schmidt Paralysis Foundation. The founders original intent was to fund research and provide advocacy and programming for SCI patients and their families. Though SSPF achieved many successes over the next decade, the ultimate goal remained elusive: a cure.
