A note from our Founder:

In the Fall of 2019, I lost my wife Sharon to Alzheimer’s disease. Over the twelve years from her diagnosis, I was devoted to her well-being, yet I watched her deteriorate; it was beyond my control. I wished then and I wish now I could have done something to stop that disease in its tracks.

I am driven to move the needle forward in Alzheimer's research, to seek breakthroughs and to ultimately find a cure for this cruel disease. Please join me in supporting my mission to change the way we detect and treat Alzheimer's disease. My goal is to change the future for those facing a diagnosis of Alzheimer's and their loved ones.

By funding and conducting scientific research, my goal is to uncover ground-breaking advances in the way we detect and treat Alzheimer's, and to bring those new tools and therapeutics into the Canadian Healthcare system.

With your generous support, SFIRM-funded research will bring us closer to effective Alzheimer’s treatments and successful cures.

Dr. Robert W. Francis
