Thank you to all of our friends at the Claddagh Foundation for the contribution. Some people are going to be very happy when we are able to help with funding for equipment that will make things easier for them, or maybe it will simply be something that will bring a little happiness into their lives by making something fun possible. Whether it is for physical functioning or a boost of morale, you will be making good things happen. Your kindness and generosity is always a big help and it is always appreciated

Thank you for your incredible support and donation... I'm proud to tell you we received FDA approval to begin a Human Clinical Trial evaluating the safety of Schwann cells in people with spinal cord injuries in both the acute and chronic settings!... This is the only FDA approved trial using this type of cellular therapy on people with spinal cord injuries in the entire world... This approval offers real hope and shows we are closer than ever to curing spinal paralysis... I would like to offer my sincere gratitude on behalf of The Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis for your most generous gift.
