Brain And SpinalCord

Today, I would like to introduce a site, Brain and SpinalCord. It is also a site to help people to live.
I joined the One Match Stem Cell and Marrow Network in July. If my blood can help some one in future, it is my lucky.
OK. Let’s go into details of this site.
If you are looking for a comprehensive resource on brain injury and spinal cord injury, check out www.BrainAndSpinalCord.org. This site contains all the information survivors and their loved ones need, from descriptions of brain and spinal cord injuries to all the latest research and treatment, from information on the best rehabilitation facilities to how to provide the encourage and support survivors need to move forward after experiencing such a traumatic event. Financial issues . . . legal issues . . . the list of information available at this website go on and on.
What is special about this site is that it makes it so easy. We all know how confusing and difficult the time following a catastrophic injury can be. There are so many questions to be asked, but where do you find the answers? Well, there’s the medical team, of course, but quite often they are guarded in their answers so as not to provide false hope, or are so busy with the vast number of other patients they are treating that they just can’t spend the time with us that we really need. What can be even more difficult is navigating the whole health insurance/financial/legal aspect of catastrophic injury. BrainAndSpinalCord.org has all the answers in one place.
BrainAndSpinalCord.org makes it easy to access hundreds of articles, and points you in the right direction when it comes to resources regarding support and advocacy groups, rehabilitation centers, and other sources of assistance. The blog keeps you completely up to date on the latest news and developments regarding brain and spinal cord injury, including those that pertain to the most cutting-edge research trials.
Another thing that makes BrainAndSpinalCord.org very unique is its extensive video library, which has videos on a wide variety of topics related to brain and spinal cord injury. Some of the best videos are those that tell the stories of brain and spinal cord injury survivors and their families. Not only do you learn amazing things from the people featured in these videos, they make you feel connected and hopeful.

Used phone and refurbished phone

17 years ago, Charles Newman and his brother, Allan, noticed a tendency of Americans to use cell phones for brief periods and then discard them when an upgrade became available. This trend contributed to the accumulation of tons of solid waste, and what was interesting was the majority of these used phones being trashed were still operable. The Newmans realized this could be the path to a new industry that could be profitable and protect the environment simultaneously. As a result, the entrepreneurial brothers started ReCellular, Inc. as a means to restore, reuse, and conscientiously recycle junked cell phones.

cxtec-phone

ReCellular, which is located in Dexter, Michigan, has established itself as the largest recycler and retailer of refurbished phones and accessories on the planet. The company teamed up with the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association’s Wireless Foundation to sponsor the first Donate a Phone recycling event for a charitable cause. Over the years, they have partnered with wireless industry giants including Verizon, Motorola, Sprint, and Best Buy.

ReCellular’s dedication to a less polluted environment has earned them national and regional recognition. Every phone and accessory that is no longer functional gets recycled. As a result, ReCellular oversees the recycling of thousands of tons of electronic waste annually. Having donated or sold tens of millions of salvaged cell phones to a customer base spanning more than 40 nations, ReCellular has created an international web devoted to finding solutions that are socially, economically, and environmentally conscious in the realm of cellular technology.
