Razor Sharp Minds Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was founded on the belief that a cure can be found for Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia. To this end, Razor Sharp Minds supports direct scientific research, and endeavors that educate the public about Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia and the benefits a healthy lifestyle has on the mind. Razor Sharp Minds focuses on regional efforts to find a cure, including research and clinical practice efforts that support and encourage important aspects of life affected by Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia, so that donations have an impact in the Midwest.
Razor Sharp Minds understands that, while significant scientific discoveries and advances have been made, the adverse effects of Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia on our daily lives is palpable. Whether it is a close family member, friend, or acquaintance, it seems everyone knows someone who has suffered or is suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease or some form of dementia. We seek to educate the public about the how healthy lifestyle habits can counteract, or at least delay, the onset of dementia. Razor Sharp Minds supports and encourages many important aspects of life affected by Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia, including development of improved therapies for those living with the disease and overall healthier lifestyles that have been shown to stave off or counteract memory loss. Over 90% of donations to Razor Sharp Minds support direct scientific research and Foundation educational programs. Please visit RazorSharpMinds.org to learn more, and to donate online!
