Allan Marcus Fund for Families in Need with PSP – Announcement

Brain Support Network is pleased to announce the establishment of the Allan Marcus Fund for Families in Need with PSP. The Fund has been created in loving memory of Allan, whose diagnosis of progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) was confirmed through brain donation after his passing in 2016. His family wishes to help PSP families — through grants of up to $500 — to enrich or celebrate their loved one in a special way.

The grant program is specifically open to those with a family member with clinically diagnosed PSP in the BSN community (email list membership for three months or attendance at a caregiver-only support group meeting). Applications will be considered starting March 6, 2017.

A grant will be considered for costs or activities that would otherwise not be financially feasible. Ideas for use of the grant include (but are not limited to) therapy, travel, or creation of meaningful events or memories with your loved one.
