Bob established the Maureen Slattery Miller Care Fund on September 24, 2009 as a lasting legacy and tribute to his wife. In the years since her passing, it has played a significant role in helping patients cope with the devastating financial repercussions of the disease.
The Maureen Slattery Miller Care Fund is designed to meet the needs of people living with ALS who have a demonstrated financial need. The Fund provides monetary grants for medical, communication and assistive technology equipment; home health care; vehicle modifications; home modifications; transportation; financial assistance for medical and non-medical bills; and other financial necessities related to the cost of the disease.
“Rather than fund research, Maureen desired to try and help those presently suffering. She realized a successful treatment or cure would come, but she wanted to help people in the here and now,” Bob said. “I know this special fund will allow Maureen’s memory to live on and give others the help they need in the midst of a devastating disease.”
