National Baseball Park Tour Raises Awareness of PSP
The Shea's at AT&T Park in San Francisco
CurePSP is an organization dedicated to raising public awareness of progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP). A member of the board of CurePSP, Justin Shea, is currently taking his parents on a tour of baseball parks throughout the nation in an effort to raise public awareness and funds for PSP. Justin, whose father was diagnosed with PSP in March of 2009, is documenting the family's journey with a blog. Justin writes: "[S]ince my Dad's
diagnosis, we have been able to raise both awareness and considerable
funds to help researchers find a cure... Collectively, we have raised
over $30,000. We have decided to continue these efforts throughout the
country by visiting every MLB park."
