Where do the proceeds go?
With last year’s successful “Kites2Kure” Dystonia event, we were able to present a check of $190,000.00 to the Department of Neurology at the University of Minnesota. This year with your help, we hope to more than double our proceeds in a continued effort to find a cure! The Kurt B. Seydow Dystonia Foundation is proud to report that we’ve been able to:
Provide the University of Minnesota with an additional Lead Scientist, as well as a Junior Scientist dedicated to Dystonia research and patient advocacy, specifically for Dystonia patients.
- Implement a Monthly Support Group in the Twin Cities to further support Dystonia patients and their caregivers.
- Assist the University of Minnesota Neurology Department with medical equipment in order to advance therapies for Dystonia patients, specifically DBS (Deep Brain Stimulation), also known as a “pacemaker for the brain.”
- Provide the University with informational hand-outs for Dystonia patients and caregivers, benefitting their treatment plan and future therapies.
- Facilitate a network of individuals who are passionate about finding a cure and ensuring no one feels alone and isolated.
