George Hlinko

Co-Founder

George was a retired General Contractor and beloved member of the
Bedford Community, who struggled for 9 years with the
neurodegenerative diseases Progressive Supra-nuclear Palsy and
Corticobasal Degeneration. He continued to educate others on these
rare brain diseases and highlighted their individual symptoms and
care until he passed. George knew the desperate need for awareness
of these neurodegenerative diseases and the outcry from fellow
warriors needing support. He founded this nonprofit in order to further
awareness and research into PSP and CBD, as well as help support
others and their families who struggle with these neurodegenerative
diseases. George donated his brain to the Brain Bank at the Mayo
Clinic in Jacksonville Florida to further research efforts with PSP and
CBD for over 20 years to come!
