Frank Stein and Paul S. May: True Visionaries in the Quest to Find a Cure.
In 2008, longtime Glaucoma Research Foundation supporters, Frank Stein and Paul S. May announced their plan to make a significant contribution to advance glaucoma research. The establishment of The Frank Stein and Paul S. May Grants for Innovative Glaucoma Research will provide generous support for Glaucoma Research Foundation's annual individual investigator grants to selected research scientists. Due to their desire to make a difference, since 2010, Frank and Paul have made annual sizeable payments to the Foundation to provide this yearly grant support.
Thomas M. Brunner, Glaucoma Research Foundation's President and CEO remarked that turning their future commitment into annual support illustrates Frank and Paul's true dedication to furthering glaucoma research: "One of the aspects of this grant that is most heartfelt to me is how personally they both feel about the need for this research to continue. Frank told me he is ‘too well aware of how this disease can silently impact a person's sight, inasmuch as he was diagnosed with glaucoma many years ago, and that is the reason why he has supported our Foundation from the very beginning. And I know Paul recognizes what glaucoma can do to a person's sight since his mother was legally blind due to glaucoma. While he also has glaucoma, Paul has been spared any loss of vision."
This remarkable gift exemplifies Frank and Paul's true philanthropic spirit. Their commitment to Glaucoma Research Foundation supports both current and future pioneering studies to broaden our understanding of glaucoma and lead us closer to the ultimate goal of finding a cure. We are indebted to Frank and Paul for their ongoing partnership in our sight-saving endeavors.
Sadly, Paul passed away on September 12, 2013, but he left behind a remarkable legacy through the establishment of the Frank Stein and Paul S. May Grants for Innovative Glaucoma Research.
