It is with great sadness I write that Chuck Barancik who – with his wife Margery – set up the Barancik Prize for Innovation in MS Research was killed on Wednesday in a car collision in Florida.
Earlier this year, I interviewed both him and Margery about the Barancik Prize – its inspiration and its goals.
Though their philanthropic interests were wide, the promotion of MS research was something very close to their hearts. First hand they saw the devastation the disease caused.
Unfortunately, Margery was also involved in the collision and had been in a critical condition in the hospital has also passed away.
Our thoughts go to their family during this devastating time.
