The Alan Buegeleisen MS Research Fund

Donate To This Campaign


As friends and family know, Alan lived valiantly with primary progressive MS for 43 years. He had a wicked sense of humor and got joy out of life even while outsiders marveled at his enduring spirit. Our parents cared for him when he could no longer manage on his own, and I later joined in that caregiving until he died this year. As a debilitating, chronic affliction MS affects everyone in the family. And in a larger sense we remain part of the MS family around the world, raising funds to help eradicate this terrible disease. The Alan Buegeleisen MS Research Fund makes annual grants to the International Progressive MS Alliance to support collaborative research around the globe, and we award an annual summer Fellowship to a student from Wellesley College to experience working in an MS lab, cultivating the next generation of researchers. Thank you for making your contribution today and for being part of our family.
