We recently welcomed Diane Deaver to our local Northern California support group, which has virtual meetings for those with progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP). Her husband Doug has joined our meetings for local PSP caregivers.
Here’s a poem about brain donation that Diane recently shared. If you’d like Brain Support Network’s assistance in arranging for your brain donation (or a family member’s brain donation), let us know!
When I don’t need my brain anymore
(Which means that I’ll be dead)
Rather than have it cremated with me,
I’ll donate it to science instead.
If I can help some others
Diagnosed with PSP
to have a better future
that would mean the world to me.
If knowing what was in my brain
would help to find a cure
it would be a mighty contribution
That’s for sure.
