Brigance Brigade Foundation Awarded $5,000 Grant from the Million Dollar Roundtable Foundation

MDRT Foundation Awards Worldwide Grant to Help Equip, Encourage and Empower People Living with ALS

The Brigance Brigade Foundation, an ALS patient support organization founded by former Baltimore Ravens player O.J. Brigance and his wife Chanda, is thrilled to announce the Million Dollar Roundtable Foundation (MDRF) awarded a $5,000 Worldwide Grant to the organization in support of their patient grant program. The grant will directly impact the Brigance Brigade Foundation and those it serves by allowing people with ALS and their caregivers to live a higher quality of life through equipment donations and support services.

While the ultimate goal is a world without ALS, the Brigance Brigade Foundation recognizes the need to help those families battling the disease right now; ALS can cost families up to $200,000 a year. The MDRF award will be instrumental in providing people living with ALS access to essential equipment, resource guidance and support services.

“We greatly appreciate this significant support from the Million Dollar Roundtable Foundation, all thanks to our dedicated Board Member, Andreas T. Dailey, President of Executive Insurance Benefits” said Amanda Mummert, Foundation Director. “On behalf of the ALS families we serve, thank you for your generous support of our mission!”

Each year, the MDRT Foundation provides more than $1 million to charitable programs around the world through the Worldwide Grant, Quality of Life grant and additional programs.
