Mr. Herman Stone & Family

Mr. Herman Stone (president and CEO of Stone Theaters) and his family know all too well the devastating impact of MS. In 2012 Mr. Herman Stone gifted Dr. Gregory and the David H. Murdock Research Institute (DHMRI) a foundational grant which launched Discovery MS. This generous donation has made all of our research and discoveries thus far possible.

Eric & Erika Braun

They raised an astounding $39,606 in their 2017 fundraiser!

Since developing MS in 2001, Eric Braun has met with medical providers and researchers across the country seeking the best treatment options for his worsening symptoms. While at an MS fundraiser he met our Primary Investigator, Dr. Simon Gregory, and they immediately hit it off. As they discussed MS, science, and research funding, they found a shared passion for understanding MS and finding a cure. Eric and Simon have since become friends and support each other’s efforts in the fight against MS.

As part of Eric’s battle with MS, he and his wife Erika hold an annual fundraiser to benefit MS research. After meeting with Simon many times and attending Discovery MS executive meetings, Eric and Erika were impressed with the work we’re doing and decided to gift us the proceeds of their 2017 fundraiser.We are honored to be selected as this year’s beneficiary of Eric and Erika Braun’s annual fundraiser to support MS research.

Eric and Erika belong to a wonderful community of people who support MS research, and we are privileged to be the recipients of such generosity. We cannot thank the Brauns and their generous supporters enough! (We’d love to include all the names of Braun Fundraiser donors in our honor roll.
