The Alan T Brown Foundation was established in 1988 when Alan T. Brown was injured in a water accident while vacationing in Martinique.
Since then, Fran Brown has spearheaded The Alan T Brown Foundation. Under her leadership ATBF has become a strong force in the paralysis community. In 2012, Alan T. Brown joined the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation as the Director of Public Impact. Alan has provided direct counsel to hundreds of individuals living with spinal cord injury. He serves as the frontline to provide support to families recently impacted by paralysis. Daniel and Steven, Alan’s brothers, were both on the Ramaz hockey team. Steven was the Coach of the Ramaz Rams during their Championship season.
Earlier this year, ATBF announced that they would join forces with the Reeve Foundation to unite the organizations to further accelerate the development of treatments and programs for individuals living with paralysis. Proceeds will support both the Reeve Foundation and ATBF in their dual mission–Today’s care. Tomorrow’s cure.© We are dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through information, advocacy and support. Together we can optimize our resources and work smarter, harder and faster to bring life-changing treatments to the paralysis community.
