Congratulations Tim Howard - U.S. Men's National Soccer Team Goalkeeper - who has overcome a host of odds his entire life. He makes great saves at the net and he's saving others who struggle with the stigma of Tourette Syndrome. We're cheering for you! #CureBrainDisease http://ow.ly/ywmBq

The vision of the American Brain Foundation is to cure brain disease.
Introduction

Mission

The American Brain Foundation supports vital research & education to discover causes, improved treatments, and cures for brain and other nervous system diseases.
 
Description

The American Brain Foundation, the foundation of the American Academy of Neurology, is an independent 501(c)(3) organization that funds the most crucial research to cure brain disease, such as Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, autism, and epilepsy. Brain disease affects more than 50 million people in the United States alone. In moving toward its vision, the American Brain Foundation’s goal is to reduce the prevalence of brain disease 50 percent by 2040.

American Academy of Neurology
The American Academy of Neurology, the world's largest association of neurologists with more than 26,000 members, is dedicated to promoting the highest quality patient-centered neurologic care and enhance member career satisfaction. A neurologist is a doctor with specialized training in diagnosing, treating and managing disorders of the brain and nervous system such as Alzheimer's disease, stroke, migraine, multiple sclerosis, brain injury, Parkinson's disease, and epilepsy.
