THE MICHAEL J. FOX FOUNDATION FOR PARKINSON'S RESEARCH
The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson's disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson's today.
In 2009 Carol's husband, Pat Hagan, was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Upon learning of his diagnosis, Pat and Carol turned to The Fox Foundation for more information and answers. They found a vast wealth of resources in providing both information about Parkinson's Disease, living with it, and what leading research and clinical trials are revealing in the ongoing battle to fight this disease. The Fox Foundation provided much information for us, as well as detailed outlines of their aggressive funding of research conducted to both treat the symptoms of people living with the disease, and to finding the cure. Pat and Carol were inspired by the efforts of The Fox Foundation, and wanted to find ways to help raise funds to help assist them in their mission. This was done by a combination of fine art auctions, and by exclusive evenings of fine food, music, and art auctions, held at the famous Walkers Grill in Billings, Montana. Artists, Musicians and Chefs were key in all of these endeavors, and we are so grateful to them all. You can view the list of these extraordinary artists and stellar musicians here on the Contributors to the Causes page. To date, Pat Hagan's Team Fox has raised over $315,000 for The Fox Foundation, over $100,000 of it was met with matching grants. It has been a labor of love for all involved, and we are so grateful for everyone's help.
