It’s never good when successful business professionals mix personal gain with scientific discovery. From what’s been shown in movies and on TV, those people always have some shady agendum behind their generosity. It’s rare to hear about a millionaire donating out of the kindness of their heart.
If there was ever a cause that everyone could agree on, it would be healthcare. That’s not talking affordable healthcare or health insurance. Healthcare, in the sense of providing health to everyone in the world; solving medical problems and eliminating disease so that no one suffers.
There’s one major health obstacle that no one’s been able to get around–aging. When people get older, and they all do, they can develop any number of health problems. The older someone is the worst the problems can be. Currently, most health companies are trying to find treatments and alleviate people’s pain.
Though not all health conditions and diseases stem from aging, most of them do. If someone could figure out a way to stop or at least slow the aging process, it would give everyone in the world a better chance at living long, healthy lives.
Because aging is such a big deal, there are thousands of organizations trying to solve the age problem. Most of those companies are only interested in making people look young forever, but there are few who want to enhance humanity’s quality of life. One of the men looking for answers is Aubrey de Grey, co-founder of the SENS Foundation.
The SENS Foundation was founded about eight years ago and has attracted a lot of attention from people like Jason Hope. Jason Hope is entrepreneur and philanthropist who’s interested in improving the quality of life on planet Earth. He doesn’t suffer from anything except aging.
Most of the time successful business professionals turn to medical philanthropy, it’s because they’re dying from something. Jason Hope is a healthy man with healthy habits and only wants to make people’s lives better. He has a lot of money and can donate to organizations like SENS, so he does.
Jason liked what he say when he came across SENS and donated $500,000 in 2010. Since then, he’s been a donor whenever the organization needed something Aubrey couldn’t afford on his own.
