Cherie Levien Quality of Life Fund
The Cherie Levien Quality of Life Fund was created to provide direct support to those living with progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), corticobasal degeneration (CBD), multiple system atrophy (MSA). With these diagnoses, care needs change and increase over time, requiring more attention and energy of family members. Research indicates that even temporary or intermittent relief of caregiving demands can help reduce stress and improve the quality of day-to-day life for patients and family care partners.
Through the provision of a $1,500 grant to be used for professional in-home care services, this fund offers family care partners with an opportunity for respite, with the peace of mind of knowing their loved one with PSP, CBD or MSA has the care that they need during that time.
Grant application deadlines: January 31, April 30, July 31, October 31
