CHCF Brain Foundation
"Promoting Research to Develop Personalized Medicine for Serious and Life-Threatening Diseases of the Brain and Revolutionizing how we approach serious mental illnesses like any other physical diseases of brain"
I formed CHCF in honor of my only son, whom I tragically lost in 2020. He was an incredible athlete and explorer, and we shared a tremendous love for solving complex problems through scientific and critical thinking. I was, and always be, honored to be his father. My son will remain in my heart every moment for the rest of my existence.
In establishing this foundation, I hope to keep his memory and intrepid spirit alive. Because he always called me a fixer, I don't want to let him down by giving in to despair, grief, and regret. Although I know it's too late to change the past for my beloved son, I feel it's my duty to do whatever is in my power to try to improve the future for others.
