Cure Alzheimer's Fund was established to fund targeted research with the highest probability of slowing, stopping or reversing Alzheimer's disease through venture based philanthropy. All organizational expenses are paid for by the Founders and Board, allowing all other contributions to be applied directly to Alzheimer's Disease research. Our foundational research is focused on identifying all the genes and gene mutations that are linked to Alzheimer's Disease. We can then use this genetic information to reliably predict, early in life, those at greatest risk for the disease (with legal safeguards and genetic and psychological counseling). Our foundational research projects include: Alzheimer's Genome Project, Alzheimer's Genome Map, Alzheimer's Brain-Genetic Study, Alzheimer's Clinical-Genetic Study, Alzheimer's Gene Database, MicroRNA's and APP, and Alzheimer's Gene Discovery Project.

A mother and grandmother, Leda has fought and beat breast cancer twice. She underwent multiple surgeries and radiation to combat the disease. Her family was her motivation to fight, and through her battle she discovered her inner strength. Leda's my inspiration for creating this collection.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation

The Diabetes Research Institute Foundation was created in 1971 by a small group of parents of children with diabetes - parents committed to finding a cure for this devastating disease. Driven by hope and fueled by the need to end their children's suffering, they banded together to support a promising research program at the University of Miami solely aimed at curing those living with diabetes. From providing the vital seed funding necessary to pursue innovative ideas, to bringing promising discoveries to patients now living with diabetes, the Foundation is a key to enabling the Diabetes Research Institute scientists to accelerate research.

Baby Quest Foundation
Baby Quest was born from one young woman’s struggles to have a child.
However, her story is far from unique. It is a story shared by one in eight women—most of whom never dreamt that having a baby would be so difficult. With the high costs of assisted reproduction, a solution to infertility is often out of reach, allowing financial need to prevent many from becoming parents.
Baby Quest has grown one grant, one IVF, one new baby at a time. More than anything, our grant program offers hope to many who feel lost. Only with community support can we continue to offer this hope to more recipients each grant cycle.

In 2012, Zack started to be really tired & have some weird inflammation and swelling. At first we thought it would go away, but his symptoms kept getting worse. Until one day his pain was so bad that we took him to the hospital. He was in excruciating pain while doctors tried to diagnose what was wrong. It took 5 days & a whole lot of tests to finally hear, Zack has lupus.
Lupus Research Alliance
The Alliance for Lupus research is dedicated to finding a cure for lupus. We believe in doing one thing, and doing it well. Founded in 1999, our sole mission is to prevent, treat and cure lupus through medical research. The Alliance applies a strategic business approach to funding research. In 2000 and 2001 we asked scientists to submit proposals to identify targets for new therapies in lupus. These proposals needed to be ideas that would lead to the development of new drugs or biologic agents to treat lupus within two years. And because we want to fund the best research, wherever that may be, we accepted applications from all over the world, and from industry, as well as academia.
