The Oscar Project

Funded by the Michael R. Zupancic Seizure Response Dog Endowment Fund

The Oscar Project is funded by the Michael R. Zupancic Seizure Response Dog Endowment Fund. The Zupancic family established this endowment with the EFWCP to honor their son, Michael Zupancic, and to help others living with epilepsy. The fund helps by providing guidance and financial support to children and adults who have epilepsy/seizures who want to obtain specially trained dogs that provide assistance to seizure patients.

Michael Zupancic loved his dog, Oscar. Oscar was a devoted dog and constant companion for Michael. Michael died much too young at the age of 46. The family established the Michael R. Zupancic Seizure Response Dog Endowment Fund to help epilepsy patients gain independence with a seizure dog and to have a constant companion like Oscar.
