Entrepreneur, futurist, philanthropist, and investor, Jason Hope is more than the sum of his titles. The reason is he is fighting a battle you will not see covered anywhere in the news for some time. It is a battle we all struggle very few, if any, have triumphed successful. The struggle that I am eluding to is that against death, and for Hope, he is not letting the odds stand in his way.
Anti-aging has become one of those things we see more often in ads and on sci-fi flic that go beyond our reality. The creams do not work as we expect, and that flic we find ourselves addicted to is merely a combination of makeup and computer-generated imagery, but what if there was some truth to it. That is where Jason Hope comes in alongside the $500,000 donation he made to the SENS Foundation in 2010. This non-profit organization is hellbent on researching new technologies within the biotech industry to fight the curse of aging.
First, donations like Jason Hope help the organization to take fast action towards finding treatments for diseases like diabetes and Alzheimer’s. Others diseases would include arthritis, osteoporosis, cancer and high blood pressure (which can lead to diabetes). As they occur the older we get, the idea is to uncover treatments that reverse their effects and stop them in their tracks. These types of medications called AGE-breakers already exist for small animals, the problem comes when taking the concept and applying it to humans. AGE-breakers work by attempting to obliterate advanced glycation end-products which is the reason as we age, out flesh, becomes veiny and less flexible.
Research and continued donations from backers like Jason Hope has led SENS to identify a more significant culprit of this sort of breakdown in our bodies called glucosepane. It promotes the aging process as well as multiple other health-related issues that arise with age. More recently Jason Hope has contributed more than $1 million in SENS to aid in their continued push towards real-world solutions that can break down glucosepane. Jason Hope Pledges $500,000
Beyond his titles, Jason Hope graduated from Arizona State University where he studied finance and business. He currently resides in Scottsdale and continues to contribute time and resources to other organization and efforts outside of SENS like the Andre Agassi Foundation, TZrue COlor Fund, and Worldwide Orphans Foundation. His sense of passion for contributing to the welfare of others goes far beyond what we think is possible. Twitter
