Julie Kan, one of the most amazing people I have ever had the privilege of getting to know, died after a long and arduous battle with Multiple Systems Atrophy (MSA). Julie was a brilliant, funny, caring individual who profoundly impacted the lives of everyone she met. The loss of her indomitable spirit and sheer brainpower leaves all of us who knew her feeling a huge loss. Please consider donating to the MSA Coalition in Julie's honor Importantly, a world-class scientific advisory board will vet all research proposals to ensure your money only goes to the most promising MSA research. Funds not allocated to research will be used for very important educational, advocacy, awareness initiatives and operating expenses. Unpaid volunteers run the MSA Coalition, so operating expenses are low. The MSA Coalition promises to adhere to the Association of Fundraising Professionals Donor’s Bill of Rights.
