The Lone Star Paralysis Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, based in Austin, Texas. We raise money for paralysis research to support therapy for hundreds of patients. We are a dedicated group of people working hard to find a cure for spinal cord injury, and we will — this decade. We already have the people, the technology, the science — the missing ingredient is money. So please help us during this “Decade Of the Cure.”
The Mission of the Lone Star Paralysis Foundation (LSPF) is to cure Spinal Cord Paralysis through funding (3 R’s) Research, Recovery and Recreation.
Research: LSPF funds a variety of spinal cord research projects that are currently on the verge of new discoveries.
Recovery: LSPF funds a state-of-the-art adaptive fitness center that is free to anyone with a spinal cord injury, located at 7900 FM 1826, Room 105, Austin, TX 78737.
Recreation: LSPF funds & coordinates a variety of adaptive sports such as Kayaking, Rugby, Basketball and Tennis to those living with spinal cord paralysis.
What We Do
The Lone Star Paralysis Foundation (LSPF) is working to continue to grow and move the clock forward on a cure. New fundraising initiatives are being planned and new research is being sought. Austin receives around 135 new spinal cord injuries each year. In almost every instance the injured is a young, healthy, active person living life to the fullest when disaster strikes. Their stories are always tales of courage and inspiration. The board of the Lone Star Paralysis Foundation will continue to donate their time and resources toward the goal of making paralysis from spinal cord injury only a temporary injury.
“Our mission is to work ourselves out of business.”
