The Event’s Purpose
The Michael-Ryan Pattison Foundation was established in 2006 so others with spinal cord injuries could access the best possible care for their disability. Michael-Ryan serves as President of the Foundation, and has organized several increasingly successful fundraising events. The A Cure is Coming auction and dinner is in its seventh successful year! The auction has allowed us to provide help to numerous members of the SCI community. We are currently working with Dr. John McDonald and Restorative Therapies LLC to bring his cutting edge approach to SCI to the Pacific Northwest in the form of a healing center, which will serve as a post-hospital rehabilitation and restorative care center for SCI victims throughout the world.
Michael-Ryan Pattison, or “MR” as his friends call him, grew up in Woodinville, Washington, where he was very active in sports and other extracurricular activities. After graduating high school, MR chose to attend Washington State University. Communications and business were his focal points. While taking a break from school with some friends, he was involved in a tragic diving accident in Lake Chelan. Despite multiple surgeries, rehabilitation at the world’s best SCI facilities, and the highest level of care, MR was left a quadriplegic, unable to move below his collarbone. With drive and determination, The Michael-Ryan Pattison Foundation was established to help others struggling with paralysis and spinal cord injuries. Our mission is “to build a level of awareness of and philanthropic support for those with spinal cord injuries that enable access to a range of specialized therapies focused on improving overall quality of life.”
“I’m so very thankful for the opportunities that have been placed in front of me to help others that are less fortunate, yet are in the same boat as myself. These communities of people helping us achieve our goal will continue to grow, culminating in the building of the healing center. Thank you for all you have done.
“Remember, we can do together what we could never do alone. Thanks so much.”
