Buoniciotti Fund 9th Annual Raise a Glass for the Cure

Posted by Aaron J. Freiwald on November 14, 2012

Freiwald Law was a Silver Sponser for the 9th Annual Raise a Glass for the Cure sponsored by the Buoniciotti Fund for Spinal Cord Research. Mr. Layser previously represented Frank LaMacchia for the accident which caused his paralysis approximately 14 years ago.

Mr. LaMacchia is now a member of the Board of Magee Rehabilitation Hospital and one of their success stories. The photograph shows Mr. LaMacchia walking in the Ekso bionic suit at the fundraiser.

The Ekso bionic suit is an external walking device that allows individuals with paralysis and lower limb issues to stand and walk. The device was initially developed for the military but is not used in rehab facilities all across the United States. The Ekso makes the dream of walking again a reality for people living with a disability and who are unable to walk.

Layser & Freiwald is very proud of Mr. LaMacchia and hopes that a cure for Mr. LaMacchia and simiarily situated individuals is near.
