Last year I lost my father to an illness called Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP), a rare disease under the umbrella of Parkinsonism. It affects only 5 to 6 people in 100,000. There is no cure for PSP and treatments are few, but CurePSP is working to change that. 
So this father's day, in honor of my dad, I would like to support the efforts of CurePSP by hosting a fundraiser via Booster.com. ALL proceeds will go directly to CurePSP.
Please consider purchasing a t-shirt for your dad and please share this post with your family and friends!
Thank you in advance for supporting this cause and for helping me honor my father!
Buy a t-shirt to support Celebrate Your Father and Help Cure PSP!! Please share!
