    Poor Marc, doesn't he know he's being scammed. Really, having him walk again is Nick Buoniconti's number one priority.

    DA, you've hated MP from the beginning, same song.

    As an organization, focused on the cure (not necessarily agreeing with their methodology) they are consistent, determined, visible and better organized than any other SCI group imo.

    Now maybe some members will understand. Even with an influx of $16m in one night progress is painstakingly slow.

    Btw, Chris Waddell was inducted into their Hall Of Fame last night. First injured SCI skier with credentials matching up with the ab'd athletes. Congrats Chris!

    Gloria Estefan is a remarkable person. While many who nearly escaped permanent paralysis physically recover and move on, Ms.Estefan has remained in the fight. She has donated several Million(s) of money & her personal time. She was recently on Larry King Live, keeping the spotlight on the need for treatments. It wouldn't surprise me if she & Emilio were the anonymous donor of the $10 Million. They have always been big supporters of the Miami Project.

    Gotta give them that. They have been more successful with marketing, publicity and outreach and raising millions every year than anyone else. Their rolodex is impressive.

    I prefer this version

    Heres another article about it from the Miami Project website with a picture. http://www.themiamiproject.org/Page.aspx?pid=503

    respond to not only the
    challenges you're dealt but
    the challenges you seek...If
    you have no goals, no
    mountains to climb, your
    soul dies".~Liz Fordred

    Thumbs up miami

    let Miami continue cure rats and develop new techniques and let clinical trials in humans be done in China. USA clinical trials in humans are too expensive, controversial, and move too slowly. What trials to cure human with complete SCIs have been done in the last 10 years?
    None. The are 3 reasons above explain that. Basic research in animal in the USA and in human in China. Plenty of volunteers in China with no electronic equipment to make their life more livable.
