Message from the President

Dear Miami Project and Buoniconti Fund friends and supporters:

I’m proud to announce that The Miami Project and The Buoniconti Fund are on track to exceed all fundraising and research goals.  Our clinical trials are proceeding at a great pace, and are demonstrating significant advances in both sensory and motor function.  Our team has never been more focused and optimistic about the future of our research and the real potential for all those who are paralyzed to walk again.

It is with tremendous gratitude that I send out a BIG THANK YOU to all of our donors who have helped us to get to these exciting times in our history.  Of course, I am always reminded of our humble beginnings when a simple promise from a father to his son ignited a scientific revolution. It is only because of my father, that The Miami Project and spinal cord injury research is as advanced as it is today.

As many of you may know, my father Nick Buoniconti has been struggling with his own health difficulties this past year.  Now is a momentous time to acknowledge his greatness and recognize his tremendous efforts on behalf of the spinal cord injured community.  While he has lived a Hall of Fame life with many achievements in sports, business, television and much more, his greatest accomplishments have been in the area of neuroscience and the vital role it will play in curing paralysis.  “Thank you Dad for everything you have done for me! You are an incredible man and my hero! I can only hope that in your eyes, I have earned your respect and am deserving of all the hard work that you have put into making my life better. I love you so much and I am so proud to be your son!”  Together, we will find a cure for paralysis.
