Cure PSP- In honor of Indra Kapoor

Donate to “Cure the Pain in the Brain” event today!

In honor of Indra Kapoor

Our grandmother, Indra Kapoor, who is now 77 years old, is suffering from Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP). PSP is a brain disease in the category of neurodegenerative diseases along with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Lou Gehrig diseases. Brain cells in this disease break down for unknown reasons. PSP is extremely rare and thus often goes misdiagnosed as many do not know about it. Therefore, your donation and support is highly needed and appreciated to find cure for this insidious disease.


2008 – Our journey started when she was 74. She began showing signs of weakness, such as falling and pain. We took her too many local doctors who told her it comes with age and who told us to just use a walker. The pain was growing and the falls were more frequent.
2010 – She visited an area hospital because we were tired of the doctors telling us that it was only natural. There, they speculated that she had ALS. We spent the next year working with physical and occupational therapists. As the days went by, cure for PSP. We would greatly appreciate it if you could join us in this walk to show her how much she has affected everyone around her and how much we care about her along with others like her. We want to find a cure and we want you to help!


Together we can make a difference and find a cure for this disease. Cure PSP’s mission is to “Increase awareness of PSP, CBD, MSA and related brain diseases; fund research toward cure and prevention; educate healthcare professionals; and provide support, information and hope for affected persons and their families.”
