Who We Are!

Coleen Cunningham Foundation

The Coleen Cunningham Foundation serves individuals and families dealing with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP), Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) and Corticobasal Degeneration (CBD).

Our Non Profit Foundation Board is composed of volunteers who each have a personal connection to Atypical Parkinsonism. Having experienced the frustration first hand and felt by so many families affected by Atypical Parkinsonism (difficulty getting a diagnosis, healthcare teams unfamiliar with the diseases, lack of information and support in the community) We are passionate about not wanting another family in Canada to face the same challenges. Our aim is to become a National Charity serving all Canadians affected by PSP, MSA and CBD.

No One Walks Alone!

Objective: To promote health by providing individuals and families touched by Atypical Parkinsonism with access to related counselling, information, and group support programs.

The Coleen Cunningham Foundation’s mission is to provide individuals and families touched by Atypical Parkinsonism with support and resources to improve their quality of life and help make lasting memories. 

How we do that?

  1. We spread awareness and support through our online platforms and support groups. (PSP Awareness)
  2. Fundraising for our Programs that support families and individuals with Atypical Parkinsonism. 
  3. Our hospice care home project (Coleen's), which is focused on providing a stress- and worry-free environment for the individual and their family. Our homes will aim to provide a place where you can be a family and make memories, all while we take care of the arrangements and care required. Our care teams will have specialized training, focusing specifically on Atypical Parkinsonism and the medical and caregiving challenges that come with it.

“No One Walks Alone”

Many feel alone through their journey with Atypical Parkinsonism. Due to limited resources and knowledge of these diseases, the prognosis is poor. Coleen Cunningham Foundation wants to help improve the quality of life for those suffering and walk beside them on this journey.  

There is no known cause, treatment or cure for Atypical Parkinsonism. 

Help us change that!

Atypical Parkinsonism occurs as four diseases in particular: dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), multiple system atrophy (MSA), progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), and corticobasal degeneration (CBD).

If we can be of help, please reach out to us.
