The Kelly Brush Foundation - Active Fund
Kelly Brush Foundation Invites Applications from People with Spinal Cord Injuries to Active Fund
Scholarship Opportunity


MONEY AVAILABLE: Grants rarely exceed $5,000 and the average grant amount generally is around $3,500.

ELIGIBILITY: To be eligible, applicants must be an individual with paralysis caused by spinal cord injury who reside in the United States. Other conditions not eligible for KBF grant programs include but are not limited to spina bifida, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, post-polio syndrome, Guillain-Barre´ Strohl Syndrome, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and all other neuropathies and conditions causing disability.
PURPOSE: The Kelly Brush Foundation is dedicated to making active lifestyles a reality for those who have experienced a spinal cord injury. To that end, KBF is inviting applications for its Active Fund. Through the fund, the Foundation will provide grants to individuals with paralysis caused by spinal cord injury for the purchase of adaptive sports equipment. The fund will consider funding any piece of sports or recreation equipment specifically designed for people with disabilities that allow an applicant to be active. It should be noted that first-hand experience using the desired equipment in the environment you intend to use it is extremely important to the Grant Committee. Although the Foundation gives preference to equipment that provides some fitness benefit, it will consider applications for power equipment where applicants can persuasively explain why that type of equipment is the best and most appropriate piece of equipment needed to live an active lifestyle.

Golf-A-Thon Success
Thank you!
On August 3, 2020, NAF hosted our second Golf-A-Thon. This event provides the opportunity for individuals to raise funds in support of NAF by securing sponsorships/pledges for every hole golfed. Some of our golfers did 60 holes!!

We want to send a special thanks to the folks listed below. This event would not have been possible without their dedication, fund-raising efforts, and certainly not without their willingness to golf! We also want to thank Scott Mayes of Chick-Fil-A in Irving for donating lunches to our golfers and volunteers and Costco of Fort Worth for donating snacks and drinks for the golfers.

These wonderful people raised over $6,700 for NAF!

Meet Board Member, Jill McKean-Bilby
Jill McKean-Bilby joined the Neuro Assistance Foundation board in 2019, and heads up the Events Committee. For a career, Jill is the President of BOK Financial Equipment Finance, Inc. (Bank of Texas), and manages a team that works in the bank’s eight state footprint. She has been working in that industry for about twenty years. Jill is a graduate of Texas A&M University, where she has a degree in Kinesiology and Sport Management, as well as her MBA from Texas Christian University. In 2000, Jill worked for the US Olympic Committee where she was able to help plan the Sydney 2000 Olympics and Paralympics. “Working for the US Olympic Committee was a dream come true! I have always enjoyed the sports industry, and watching the athletes train so hard to represent Team USA was so inspiring.”
“I was introduced to the Neuro Assistance Foundation by a couple of other board members who I am close friends with. I joined the Neuro Assistance Foundation board because I am passionate about helping others, especially those who have been impacted by situations out of their control. I was able to get to understand the lifestyle of some who have disabilities by working with some of the Paralympic athletes in 2000. I have been blessed to have been able to move freely and be active, and I definitely do not take those things for granted.” Jill has brought some unique fundraising ideas to NAF. She has really enjoyed working with the great board that is in place.
Jill is married to her husband, Heath, and they reside in Weatherford, Texas. They have two children, Brooke (18) and Wiley (15). In their spare time, they enjoy traveling…especially to somewhere they can go camping, hiking, and fishing while taking in the outdoors. They have a passion for helping give back in their church and community.
Why NAF?

In his interview with Bruce Waller, Stephen MacKintosh shares his inspiring successes with NAF's assistance.

Listen to his story - it's worth your time!

With COVID cases on the rise and continued time in quarantine, we thought we would share another favorite recipe!

Below is another fun recipe you can check out in your spare time.
Ebelskivers - The Danish Pancake

Two-Cheese Puffs with Marinara
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs separated
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons finely diced fresh mozzarella
  • 1 cup marina sauce
For the Sauce:
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes
  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

For the ebelskiver: Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a small bowl, lightly whisk the egg yolks, then whisk in the milk and 2 tablespoons of the melted butter. Add the yolk mixture to the flour mixture and, using a wooden spoon, stir until well blended. The batter will be lumpy.

In a clean bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff, but not dry, peaks form. Fold about one-third of the egg whites into the batter to lighten it, then fold in the rest with 1/4 cup of the Parmesan and the basil just until no white streaks remain.

Brush the wells of the ebelskiver pan with some of the remaining melted butter and place over medium heat. When the butter starts to bubble, working quickly, sprinkle a heaping 1/2 teaspoon of the remaining Parmesan into each well. Add about 1 tablespoon batter into each well, then carefully add 1/2 teaspoon mozzarella to the center of each pancake. Top each with another 1 tablespoon batter.

Cook until the bottoms of the pancakes are lightly browned and crisp, 3-5 minutes. Use 2 short wooden skewers to turn all the pancakes and cook until lightly browned on the second side, about 3 minutes longer.

Transfer the finished pancakes to a platter and keep warm in the oven while you repeat to make 2 more batches. Serve with the marinara.

For the marinara: In a large frying pan over medium heat, saute the garlic in the olive oil until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in the red pepper flakes, basil, oregano, and tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until thickened, about 20 minutes. Season to taste.
Meet Charles...
Charles, age 51, was injured in an ATV accident. He sustained a C3 injury and is living with tetraplegia. Charles needed a power chair to go home from rehab but wasn't able to afford one. NAF was able to provide Charles with a Permobil F3 which had been donated to us a few months earlier. We were happy to play a part in keeping Charles mobile and independent.
Meet Alex...
Alex, age 13, was born with spina bifida. His mother was worried about having him out in the Texas heat as he can't control his body temperature. NAF provided a cooling vest which holds cooling packets against his body and helps to keep him from overheating.
Meet Miss G...
Miss G., age 4, was born with spina bifida. Her local children's hospital reached out to NAF for assistance with her diapers and catheters. She is on a waiting list for the state agency, Children with Special Health Care Needs, but needed help in the interim period. NAF is providing both diapers and catheters monthly.
THANK YOU To Our Sponsors! 
We Need Your Help
Donate ~ Sponsor ~ Volunteer
Your $25 donation will help provide clean catheters to a paralyzed child for one month when their insurance won't cover the expense.

Your $100 donation will help build a wheelchair ramp so we can get our clients out of rehab and through their front door at home.

Your $200 donation will help widen the doorways in their homes so their wheelchair can fit through the bathroom door. Insurance doesn't covers home modifications.

Your $500 donation will help provide life-changing medical equipment: wheelchairs and specialized shower chairs, etc. Most insurance only covers a small part of wheelchairs, if any, and no "bathing aids" are covered. 

No donation is too small. Click here for more information!
