sociation and ultimately merged his own foundation with it.

Christopher Reeve passed away Oct. 10, 2004, and his wife, the actress and singer Dana Reeve, died March 6, 2006, after a brief bout with a form of lung cancer unrelated to smoking. A recent graduate of Columbia Law School, Alexandra Reeve now practices law in New York and serves on the Board of Directors of the Reeve Foundation.

Organizations spearhead cutting-edge research

Both The Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis and The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation have pushed the boundaries of medical treatments by funding groundbreaking research aimed at treating and repairing spinal cord injuries.

For example, The Miami Project's research into the benefits of intravenous hypothermic treatments immediately following a spinal cord injury was used after Buffalo Bills football player Kevin Everett sustained a severe spinal cord injury during a September 2007 NFL game. Dubbed "an ice pack for the spinal cord" by The Miami Project's Dr. Green, the treatment was credited with reducing swelling and minimizing further damage to Everett's spinal column in an injury that could have left him paralyzed. He was walking again within a few months of his accident.

"The type of injury Kevin suffered is similar to the injury I sustained in 1985 that left me paralyzed," Marc Buoniconti said. "The fact that Kevin is walking again is real-life evidence of the amazing advances we've achieved. The money raised by the Ameristar National Charity Golf Classic helps fund the type of groundbreaking research that someday will allow people with serious spinal cord injuries to walk again."

Accomplishments of The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation include launching the North American Clinical Trials Network, which is charged with advancing promising laboratory therapies into clinical trials, and the NeuroRecovery Network, a group of rehabilitation centers that provide activity-based therapies to peo
