The Project

by Meet: The Cure Map

On January 9th, 2017, two friends embarked on a journey around the country to capture on film what it means to live with a Spinal Cord Injury. This is a story of one woman's quest of self-rediscovery that led her down an unexpected path to unite and empower the SCI community in order to help expedite a cure. They visited a variety of different institutions, universities and medical centers each step along the way as a way to curate a map and illustrate what is happening in terms of Cure research all over the country. This is her story. This is OUR story. Now is our time for movement. 

The creative process is ever-evolving and it is now time to bring this story to the world. Fundraising is now key in order to bring the next phase of this project to fruition; post-production. The web has been spun and it is now time to weave their groundwork together and make this important documentary a success.
