Gift & Payment Information
Our daughter, Carmen Schentrup, was one of 17 victims of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla on February 14, 2018. After losing two people close to her from ALS, she was determined to become a leading medical researcher and discover a cure for this devastating disease. As a family, we have decided to make an initial donation of $5,628.84, Carmen's entire life savings, to create the Carmen Schentrup ALS Research Fund. Any donations made to the fund will go directly to the most promising ALS research through The ALS Association. Please join Carmen and our entire family in the quest to find a cure for ALS by making a donation today. Our hope is that, with enough help from all of you, Carmen’s dream can be achieved. Thank you for your support. – April and Phil Schentrup
Update: As of March 2020, generous supporters have grown the Carmen Schentrup ALS Research Fund to over $170,000. Carmen’s mother, April Schentrup, says, “We are so grateful and humbled at the outpouring of support for Carmen and her dream. We have always believed that Carmen would change the world and we’re touched that her story is resonating with so many people.”
