About Jean Danna and MSA 

In her final years, Jean Danna was diagnosed with Multiple Systems Atrophy (MSA), a rare progressiveneurological disorder characterized by a combination of symptoms.  Similar to Parkinson's disease, MSA is a degenerative disease of the brain and spinal cord where individuals may experience the inability to coordinate voluntary. 

On December 29, 2001 Jean lost her battle with MSA and now more than ever, her spirit remains within all of those she left behind. Joseph Y. Matsumoto, Medical Doctor and Chief of Neurology at the world famous Mayo Clinic in Rochester , MN who was i nspired by and became good friends with Jean said: “I will always remember her beautiful smile and courage as she faced the challenge of living with MSA. Through her strength of spirit, she was determined that MSA would never rob her of her ability to enjoy life”


While the exact cause of Multiple System Atrophy is unknown, research is revealing new insights that make a cure a possibility rather than simply a dream. 100% of the proceeds from this year's Jean Danna Memorial Golf Tournament will go to the MSA Research Team at the Mayo Clinic. This research team, led by Dr.'s Phillip Low and Eduardo Benarroch, is working diligently towards their goal of finding a cure for this rare disease. Our goal for this year's tournament is to raise $10,000.00. We hope that with your help we can reach this goal!
