Fargo, N.D. (WDAY TV) -A new foundation to help hundreds of families in our area, is near and dear to the hearts of the WDAY-FORUM COMMUNICATIONS family.

The family of Marv Bossart has announced the Marv Bossart Foundation for Parkinson's and Caregiver Support.

The new foundation is part of next week's big DMF--Giving Hearts Day in our region.

It was last April that Marv passed away. He had battled Parkinson's since his retirement at WDAY.

He was with us here at WDAY's anchor desk for 42 years.

His family tells us, the foundation will help fund programs for those battling Parkinson's and it will provide caregivers support as well.

Liz Bossart, Marv’s daughter: “We know what we went thru caring for him. We thought if we could lend his name to a cause that would help others with Parkinson's, that's something he would want.”

And we're honored to make a link to the foundation in honor of Marv.
