Fundraiser for Eugene Flanagan

Just under two years ago, our friend Eugene Flanagan was diagnosed with Primary Progressive Aphasia, an incurable disease that falls under the umbrella of FTD ( frontotemporal dementia). This will affect him for the rest of his life. Eugene had to stop working in early May but he has not missed a beat in the other parts of his life especially the part that means the most of all: his son Owen. His friends have organized a fundraiser to help him and his family cope with the loss of income caused by this disease.

Donate to Eugene

A GoFundMe campaign has been set up.  Please make a donation via if you are able. No amount is too small.
