Determination and Community Spirit Net Big Gains for Rare Neurological Disease Research in Quebec

Danielle Lepage Bonin has been raising funds for research into sensory neuropathy since 2009. This year, though plagued by health problems, she was still able to raise  $28, 028.50 to support Dr. Brais’ research into this rare genetic disease that disproportionately affects Quebecers in the Lanaudière region. Danielle’s devotion to this cause is well known in the community – the residents of Saint Thomas, Joliette, and the surrounding areas have contributed more than $227, 000 through her fundraising drives and because of her motivation over the past eight years. Congratulations and sincere thanks to everyone who has volunteered their time, given silent auction items, and donated to this important cause!

Stay tuned for information about next year’s fundraiser!

March is for Monthly Giving!

Every single day, 365 days a year, professionals at The Neuro are busy working on behalf of our loved ones. They will not rest until they find better treatments for those suffering from some of the most debilitating diseases and disorders of our time, but they need our help.

A monthly gift in support of The Neuro is easy to set up by using your credit card, it can be cancelled at any time, and it is the best way to ensure that when inspiration strikes, our scientists and doctors have the resources they need to make a difference for patients today, and in the future.
