The Importance of Tissue Donation to find a Cure.

Importance of Tissue Donation to find a cure

Tissue donation is one of the greatest contributions that people can and have made to help find a cure for ALS. Proper storage of tissue is necessary, so to help in the fight the BMF has extended its grant to University of Maryland’s Brain and Tissue Bank for the purchase of additional freezers devoted to ALS research.

"Those of us who know and have been personally touched by this disease, ALS... know we can never steady the un-rest of those who will follow...what we can and must do is be strong for one another, believe that one day we will have a cure...as we share the belief of..."FREEDOM"...(from ALS)"...-blazeman, (alswarriorpoet-spirit).

Dear Bob and Mary Ann,
I would like to thank both of you and the Blazeman Foundation for ALS for your continued financial support of the University of Maryland Brain and Tissue Bank. Your recent additional support for the purchase of two large (-)80oC freezers will allow us to continue to recover tissue from the generous ALS community. One of these freezers will serve as an emergency backup freezer for our precious tissue donations. Our greatest fear is that we might lose some donated tissue due to a freezer breakdown. In the 26 years of my leading the brain bank we never have lost a single sample due to freezer breakdown. Careful utilization of alarm systems has allowed us to respond in a timely manner and transfer tissue to a backup freezer.
We continue to honor Jonathan’s wish to forge ahead in ALS research. Just as Jonathan generously donated his tissue for research, we hope he set an example for others and that with a combined effort by the ALS community, research scientists and financial donors to the Blazeman Foundation, we may see an eradication of this scourge in our lifetimes.
…"so others may live."
Sincerely,
Ron Zielke, Ph.D.
Director, University of Maryland Brain and Tissue Bank
