A memorial fund has been set up in honor of Michael Stott with the Musella Foundation For Brain Tumor Research & Information, Inc. Michael passed away on July 26, 2012 from Glioblastoma Multiforme (aggressive malignant brain tumor). The Stott family would like to help the foundation and their cause. 100% of the funds donated will go to selected research projects. The Musella Foundation will not take any money for overhead. Michael Stott's sons, Tim and David will co-chair the committee that determines where the funds are used.
Before this tragedy occurred, Michael's Family had no idea about the effects a brain tumor has on its victims and the people close to them. Brain tumors affect the mind and rob the patient of their very being. The personality and emotional changes, difficulty in communicating, walking, memory issues and seizures are just a few of the horrible effects of brain cancer.
There has been slow and steady improvements in treatments over the last 30 years and they are finding better ways to treat this disease. Lack of funding has stalled many promising projects and we have the power to change that. Please consider making a donation to the Michael Stott Fund below, or send a check to Musella Foundation, 1100 Peninsula Blvd, Hewlett, NY 11557 and put Stott Fund in the memo.
When you make the donation below, we will already know that it is in loving memory of Michael, and we will send an acknowledgement to his family, but you can also add a message, or tell us how you want your name to appear on the acknowledgement in the memo below!
