The power of philanthropy has been transformational for The Neuro. The philanthropic vision and generosity of our donors has enabled The Neuro to remain at the very forefront of health research and patient care for 8 decades.
Thank you for making a difference!
$1 M gift from Mr. J. Sebastian van Berkom launches translational research into neurological disease
A patient’s very own skin cells may hold the key to new treatments and even cures for devastating neurological diseases. A generous $1 million donation from Mr. J. Sebastian van Berkom, and critical partnerships with Brain Canada, Laval University, Marigold Foundation and the FRQS-Réseau Parkinson Quebec are driving an innovative, iPSC (induced pluripotent stem cell) research platform that will transform research into Parkinson’s and other neurological diseases.
Leaving a Legacy…
The Neuro is at the cutting edge of neuroscience research and patient care, and nowhere is this more apparent than in our Epilepsy Program. These achievements are made possible thanks in large part to the generosity of our donors, among them those who have made provisions in their estate planning to support The Neuro’s important work.
In celebration of such a gift, The Neuro wishes to recognize Mrs. Barbara Helen Bloom for the generous donation given through her estate to fund epilepsy research and assist patients whose epilepsy is unable to be controlled using the currently available pharmacological and surgical options. This support was given in memory of her son, Randall Gordon Bloom.
