Impact Report

The pages of this Impact Report reflect a simple truth:  You save lives.  Not only that, you give hope, you give back, and you make a difference. And for that, we thank you.

We thank you because you support the world’s leading brain and spine specialists in their ability to research transformative treatments, educate the next generation of leading clinicians and provide the best patient care available. This leads to a revolution in medicine that makes Barrow Neurological Institute uniquely capable of fighting the most devastating conditions of our time.

Yes, you save lives. And for that, we thank you.

In 2019 alone, your dedication allowed our clinicians to repurpose a breast cancer drug to target deadly brain cancers. Your sacrifice doubled our stroke patient volume so that we could serve more of those in need. Your generosity drove our specialists to be the first in the world to test Deep Brain Stimulation as a treatment for early Alzheimer’s. Your philanthropy helped more patients receive neurosurgery procedures than any other Institute in the United States. Your loyalty broke ground on the new, state-of-the-art Neuroplex, the place where the next cure will be discovered.

Yes, you save lives. And for that, we thank you.

So do the thousands of patients we serve and the hundreds of patients’ lives you save each and every year. They thank you for giving them hope, and for giving them life.

Please continue on and read about the profound impact you have created this past year.

Because there is one simple truth: You save lives. And for that, we thank you.
