The Anna Yoder MS Fund supports multiple sclerosis research, education and outreach services in northeast Indiana for individuals and their communities affected by MS.
The Anna Yoder MS Fund was established in 2013 to support multiple sclerosis research in northeast Indiana and to provide education and outreach services for individuals and their communities affected by MS. The fund was established as a memorial to Anna Yoder through the estate of her grandmother, Fort Wayne resident Florabelle Yoder. Anna's mother, Peggy Yoder, was diagnosed with MS shortly after Anna was born. Thus Anna lived with the challenges family members face when a loved one is diagnosed with MS. This fund was established to continue the Yoder family's efforts to support those affected by MS. The funds are held with and invested by the Indiana University Foundation.
