The Lori C. Sasser Foundation is a non-profit corporation operating under IRS code section 501(c)(3). We are in partnership with top researchers in the fight against Huntington's disease. Our mission is to honor the memory of Lori and the hundreds of thousands like her by helping to ensure that ours is the last generation to be ravaged by this devastating disease. Although our main focus is Huntington's, the research we support impacts many neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's, ALS and Parkinson's.
While fighting to end Huntington's disease, we also want to help provide the most current information available for victims and caregivers alike. We believe that we can best accomplish this by introducing you to HOPES, a student-run project at Stanford University dedicated to making scientific information about Huntington's disease more readily accessible to patients and the public. We have provided a link to HOPES on our menu at the top of the page.
