This June, in honor of Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, Harrington Discovery Institute at University Hospitals is calling upon compassionate individuals like you to join us in the fight against Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia, with the number of diagnoses and the cost of care on the rise. We ask for your support to accelerate scientific breakthroughs and advance critical research into finding a cure for this devastating condition.

Make a Gift during Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month

“A disease is only a name until it hits someone you know and then it is highly personal.” – Jim Ratner, Philanthropic Supporter of Harrington Discovery Institute

Jim Ratner of Cleveland, Ohio was deeply distressed when his older brother Mark was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Mark is a world-renowned chemist and is known for being the “father of molecular-scale electronics.” As a brilliant scientist and educator, the Alzheimer’s diagnosis was devastating to him as well as his family, friends and colleagues.

In Mark’s honor, Jim and his wife, Susan, made a gift to Harrington Discovery Institute at University Hospitals to advance drug discovery and development to help cure Alzheimer’s disease. During Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, join the Ratner family in this vital pursuit by making a gift.
