Brain Science

People often say to us, “If there’s no cure for brain disorders, and if there are no treatments to reverse the progress of these horrific diseases, what’s the point? Why should I do anything?” Here at Keep Memory Alive, our aim is to do precisely what our name says: Keep memory alive. Educate and advocate for our community to take action and address modifiable threats to brain health, while promoting ways to maximize quality of life for individuals and families who are already living with brain disease. Together, we can create a brain span that matches our lifespan.

It IS Brain Science, After All

As a society, we often dismiss simple concepts by saying, “It’s not brain science, after all!” Here at Keep Memory Alive, it IS brain science. And researching it is expensive. But if we had a dollar for every time someone said, “It’s not brain science, after all,” we might already have a cure.

Your dollar can make a difference.
