Diagnosed with ALS at just 32 years old, Brian Trinastic valiantly fought the disease for seven long years. In an effort to keep the memory of Marcia and David Trinastic’s son alive, they helped create the Brian Trinastic Memorial Grant Program.
It offers two different grants to ALS patients and their families, both intending to ease the burden of living with ALS and making the disease as manageable as possible.
The Flex Grant Program offers two $500 grants every 12 months, which can be used toward vehicle modifications, assistive or communication devices, and other approved costs.
The Transportation Grant Program provides four $250 grants every 12 months to cover transportation costs for medical visits, special ALSA Wisconsin Chapter programs and other approved costs.
Any Wisconsin resident living with ALS is eligible to apply for the grants. And you can also help provide some immediate assistance for these patients, by donating to the ALSA Wisconsin Chapter on Giving Tuesday (December 1st). Until we find a cure for this insidious disease, you can help make these patients’ last days as comfortable as possible.
