Applications for the 2017 Harnett Mini-Grant: Now Being Accepted

In January 2014, the Harnett Mini-Grant was founded by Mr. Michael Harnett, as an enduring memorial to his nephew, Brendan Michael Harnett.

Brendan was was diagnosed with infantile spasms and passed away before his first birthday.

Each year, CNF is proud to partner with the Harnett family in honoring Brendan through the offering of one $1000 grant to assist a family with a child diagnosed with infantile spasms. This grant can be used to pay for eligible expenses not covered by insurance.

Applications for the 2017 Harnett Mini-Grant are now being accepted through October 15, 2017.

The recipient family will be announced during Infantile Spasms Awareness Week (ISAW), December 1-7, 2017.
