I Believe Inc.

Hi everyone!
I'm happy to announce that I'll be writing weekly blogs for I Believe Inc. on their website. I Believe Inc. is a non-profit organization, dedicated to raising awareness about spinal cord injuries (SCIs), improving the lives of people living with paralysis and supporting research for a cure. The organization was recently founded by my friend Rich Gaskin (better known as Professir X); with support from a small group of family, friends & fellow SCI advocates.
For those of you that might not have heard of “Professir X,” you can check out his website ( He has been in a wheel chair for many years now (due to a spinal cord injury) and has traveled all over the world advocating for a cure to paralysis and educating others about SCI. Rich is a musician (rapper) and he uses the stage name “Professir X” for his performances and videos. As Professir X, Rich teaches others about paralysis through his songs, which send a positive, uplifting message of hope to his audience. Rich is also producing videos for I Believe TV as part of his many advocacy initiatives. I Believe TV is available to view online through the I Believe Inc. website and currently on local public access television stations (here in NJ). In addition to I Believe TV and Rich’s musical performances, I Believe Inc. is working on programs that will promote a variety of accessible events and provide resources and information to help improve the lives of people living with paralysis.
I Believe Incorporation’s philosophy is all about teamwork. I Believe Inc. has partnered up with similar non-profit organizations, to help one another unite and work together towards the goal of finding a cure to paralysis and improving quality of life. Just recently, I Believe Inc. received a “Quality of Life” grant from the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation and we are thrilled to be working alongside them. I Believe Inc. is also working with the National Spinal Cord Injury Association and helping to promote the “JustADollar” campaign (through the Rutgers University Foundation).
I’m so pleased to have been asked to be a part of I Believe Inc and hope you’ll join me, in helping to raise awareness about SCIs and paralysis. Visit us on the web at If you know someone living with paralysis (or you yourself are paralyzed), please share your thoughts with us. We’d love to help others promote their fundraising or events. After all, we are all working towards the same goal. Also, I’m asking all readers to please share our web site with others and provide feedback, ideas or questions.
