(CNN) -- At her research lab at the University of Louisville, neuroscientist Susan Harkema turned her back to her study subject to check a reading on a computer screen. "Hey Susie, look at this," the patient called out to her. "I can move my toe!" Startled, Harkema spun around. The purpose of her study, which involves sending electrical stimulation to broken spinal cords, was to learn more about nerve pathways, not to actually make patients move.

To Everyone involved in the care and nursing of our sister, Leslie Schiff: We want to express our family’s deepest appreciation for all of your help and concern during this difficult time. Caregivers are sometimes overlooked when we know that in reality, it is only a full team of CNA’s, LPN’s, RN’s, Pt’s, OT’s, SLP’s, helpers, food service staff, kitchen staff, office personnel, cleaners, and hospice team members who maintain the highest possible quality of life for a patient.
