Conquer Paralysis Now aims to do just that: Conquer paralysis for the millions of people throughout the world who are or may become paralyzed. We want to find a cure. We believe a cure is possible.
Conquer Paralysis Now funds scientific research, medical treatment, rehabilitation and technological advances that lead us toward a cure – whether through positive advances or failures that help guide the next effort.
Sam Schmidt is paralyzed. Now an Indy Racing League owner, he was a driver when he sustained a C-3/4/5 spinal cord injury while practicing for the 2000 season opener at Walt Disney World Speedway.
He created the Sam Schmidt Paralysis Foundation (SSPF) that year to raise funds for medical research, innovative equipment used for rehabilitation, and quality-of-life issues.
