Our donor advised fund operates a unique impact model where the focus of our grant-making and investments are in palliative and integrative medicine.
The Atlas Story
Little Atlas has truly held the world on his shoulders. Since he was five weeks old, he has endured seizures, brain hemorrhages, emergency brain surgery, hydrocephalus and more challenges in his first year than than anyone should in a lifetime. Then, a month before COVID-19 hit the United States, Atlas was diagnosed with an ultra rare genetic brain condition called Alexander’s Disease (AxD), the result of a spontaneous mutation in his DNA. Through it all, Atlas has become a symbol for health freedom, vaccine safety, and the pursuit to end genetic childhood diseases. Despite doctors giving Atlas only a short time to live, Atlas continues to inspire all who know his joy for life, endurance and strength. And, he reminds all of us, that love and freedom are always worth investing in and fighting for.
