Join us for the CurePSP Brain Bank Benefit Event!

This virtual fundraising event supports the CurePSP brain donation program, operated in collaboration with the Mayo Clinic Brain Bank in Jacksonville, Florida. The Mayo Clinic’s Brain Bank serves as an invaluable resource to investigators by providing tissue samples that are essential for much of their research. Brain donations are an extremely important resource and represent the ultimate gift for science and the development of future cures and treatments for all neurodegenerative disorders including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

It also provides a postmortem confirmation of clinical diagnosis to families of the deceased thereby providing them closure. Donations to this fund allow CurePSP to reimburse families for the costs of brain donation, which for many families might be impossible without the program.
