The Daryl Matthew Gosein Memorial Scholarship Funds

MyGOAL Inc. established the Daryl Matthew Gosein Scholarship Fund in loving memory of Daryl Gosein.

Individuals who hear about Daryl’s story tend to say ‘Oh, what a tragedy’. However, those who knew Daryl know what an inspiring and rewarding experience it was to be a part of his short life. Daryl fought a tough, daily battle against Autism; a battle he fought with great love and a smile on his face. On his path to recovery, Daryl overcame AMAZING obstacles; some that baffled the medical community.

The Daryl Matthew Gosein scholarship will provide funding that will enable families to pursue treatments that Daryl never got a chance to complete. In spite of their own personal loss, it is an honor for Daryl’s family to support the families of individuals on the Autism Spectrum as they continue on their journey towards recovery or a better quality of life.
