Dear Summit Community Member, 

​                                 is to support, educate and raise awareness about the development of today's and tomorrow's evidence-based regenerative medical therapies focused on Parkinson's disease and other neurodegenerative disorders. It is our goal to empower patients and caregivers with information to elevate their understanding in order to manage their healthcare.

  • Over 1 million Americans struggle with Parkinson's disease (PD) and approximately 60,000 new cases are diagnosed each year.

  • By the time of diagnosis, over 50% of the neurons that make dopamine have already been lost. Earlier detection is not currently possible and no therapy exists to stop further loss of dopamine-producing neurons once a diagnosis is made.

  • More people have Parkinson's disease than multiple sclerosis (MS), Lou Gehrig's (amyotrophic lateral schlerosis, ALS) and muscular dystrophy (MD) - combined.

 

                     for Stem Cell Foundation (Summit is a 501(c)(3) volunteer organization that is dedicated to raising funds and supporting evidence-based regenerative medical research that will benefit people with Parkinson's disease and other neurological conditions. The three main mechanisms we utilize to in our efforts are:

                       

 

 

 

 

Our Mission
Support: 

                      Summit supports and/or funds: 

  • Innovative evidence-based regenerative medical research

  • Fellowships and Internships

  • Patients in need 

  • Patient Advocacy

Summit

                         Provide information about evidence-based regenerative medical research & other neurodegenerative  conditions: 

  • Educational Presentations to

    • PD Support Groups, etc.​

    • PD patients

  • Conferences, Seminars, Programs & Events

Education: 

                                               Summit is dedicated to elevating public and professional awareness about:

  • Evidence-based regeneratiuve medical research.

  • The progress of autologous dopamine neuron replacement therapy for PD.

Raise Awareness:

Summit successfully launched an iPSC-based therapy for PD as a future option to address the symptoms of Parkinson's disease. But the long-standing questions remain:

  • What is the Cause of Parkinson's disease?

  • What is the Cure for Parkinson's disease?

We are currently dedicated and committed to finding the answers to these "old" questions by funding and supporting innovative and new research.

We encourage you to become a Summit Community Member and support our dedicated efforts for the benefit of Parkinson's patients and other neurological conditions along with evidence-based regenerative medical research . Your donations are used to support our programs providing information, funding, and support for:

  • Innovative and new evidence-based Regenerative Medical Research looking for the Cause and Cure of Parkinson's disease.

    • i.e., Study at the University of Cardiff, UK. (Completed. May, 2019.)​

  • Microgravity Research to study 3D cellular models of neuroinflammation affects in PD and MS.

  • Funding Fellowships and Internships.

  • Our Educational Programs

            About Stem Cells.

​            About ​autologous dopamine neuron replacement therapy for PD.

  • Speaking at Patient Support Groups (including travel expenses if over 90 miles away).

  • Providing information that is current and vital.

  • In the future, provide assistance and support for those wishing to receive the autologous dopamine neuron replacement therapy for PD when it becomes available.

We invite you to join us as we work towards a Victory Over Parkinson's and other neurodegenerative conditions with a future where regenerative medicine is a reality in mainstream healthcare. Please donate TODAY.

 

We thank you,

The Board of Directors, Summit for Stem Cell Foundation
