Collaborator: The Marco Fund

The Marco Fund of the Reeve Foundation 

The Marco Fund was established in 2020 with a $1.1 million gift from Dr. Marco to the Reeve Foundation to help accelerate groundbreaking research toward cures for spinal cord injuries.

The mission of The Rex Marco, M.D., Fund of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation is to speed the development of treatments for paralysis.

Among his roles within the Foundation, Dr. Marco serves as Chief Medical Ambassador and contributes to the Reeve Foundation Quality of Life Grant Program Committee, which reviews nonprofit grant proposals for projects and initiatives that impact and empower people living with paralysis, their families and caregivers. 


As a physician and as someone who lives with a spinal cord injury, I believe strongly that cures are possible – but only if we work together. Through this collaboration and ongoing donor support of the Marco Fund at Reeve, funds will be maximized and channeled to the scientific endeavors that have the greatest potential for success.
