To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - the Koep Family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the



Muscular Dystrophy Association

In June 1950, Paul Cohen, a prominent New York business leader living with muscular dystrophy, invited a group of individuals - each with a personal connection to the disease - to focus on the urgent need to raise funds to advance research seeking treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy. This group formed the organization that became the Muscular Dystrophy Association which is now the largest source of funding for neuromuscular disease research outside the federal government and has committed more than $1 billion in funding since its inception.

Working to care for current patients and to ultimately eradicate this disease, the organization supports the largest network of care centers providing comprehensive clinical care, provides access to specialists offering one-on-one support at no cost and funds the MDA Summer Camp where thousands of children and young adults learn vital life skills and independence at no cost to families.

All contributions received in memory of Chris will be given to the Phoenix, Arizona office of the MDA.
