Estefan Makes A $1M Donation to Paralysis Project



Estefan is donating $1 million for the creation of a human clinical trials program at the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis

16 years ago in 1990 she experienced a tour-bus accident in Pennsylvania which broke her back and later on caused a temporary paralysis. Fortunately, she recovered.

After such bad incident, Gloria Estefan learns something though. And this is proven when the great singer makes a $1M donation to the creation of a human clinical trials program at the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis.

"Tomorrow, which is also my mother's birthday, will be 16 years that I got that operation and my extra spare parts that I carry with me still with pride and love, those titanium rods," Estefan said recalling back the accident.

The donation, announced Tuesday March 21st, 2006 by her producer husband Emilio Estefan, is targeted to position Miami Project scientists to move quickly toward human trials as promising research is discovered.
