Christopher Reeve

REEVE-Christopher. On behalf of the entire Board of Directors and staff of the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation we are deeply saddened and shocked by the sudden death of our friend and Chairman. He was a remarkable individual whose strength, optimism and sheer determination were an inspiration for people everywhere. We were galvanized by him in life and now we rededicate ourselves to his mission to develop treatments and cures for paralysis. Our thoughts are with all those who mourn his passing particularly the members of the Reeve family. He will be remembered for his wisdom, his wonderful sense of humor, his passion and his ceaseless courage in the face of adversity that brought hope to millions around the world. Joel M. Faden, Chairman Executive Committee Kathy Lewis, Pres & CEO
