Fia and Phill Richmond founded CNS Foundation in 2000 after spending years seeking answers to explain their son Palmer’s undiagnosed neurological condition.  The Richmonds immersed themselves in the scientific community, becoming advocates for therapies that could ultimately lead to the regeneration of damaged brain tissue. They created CNS Foundation to function as a parent-driven non-profit research foundation to assist the scientific and medical communities in reaching this goal. While 18-year-old Palmer remains unable to walk, talk or feed himself, his love, warmth and affection have inspired the Richmonds to nurture and fight for others facing similar challenges. Now led by Palmer’s older brother Alex, CNS Foundation remains committed to bringing information, hope and cures to special-needs families around the globe.
