Telling the Story of Us

Together we can make a difference.

All of the founding members of CTF have had some personal experience with dementia or other related cognitive disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease. They have been disappointed with the lack of available, effective solutions offered in today’s market. CTF raises funds to enable the discovery of effective breakthrough drugs and novel treatments by removing the traditional barriers to drug discovery. This is a fast-growing problem, not only in the United States, but globally. It affects millions of people - with the number growing higher daily and inflicting many at a much younger age. The timing is right for you to join us in our fight against dementia. We have the connections, the energy, and the backgrounds to make an immediate effect. Now all we need is YOU.

Julie Fassinger - CTF Board Advisor Justin Shal – CTF Board Advisor The foundation is doing great work. Justin Shal - CTF Board Advisor Hank Safferstein – SVP, Cognition Therapeutics Its organizations like CTF that step out and say this is a big problem we need to fund this important research.
