Stories of Giving
Gift Establishes the Phyllis L. Attman Meningioma Lab
After seeing two meningiomas in as many generations in their family, the Attmans wondered whether genetics came into play and how research into the field could benefit others who are at risk. Over a decade ago, Leonard Attman asked his daughter’s neurosurgeon, Henry Brem, M.D., what was needed to support this research, and discovered a lack of funding. The Attmans made an initial gift that led to discovery of a gene associated with more aggressive behavior in meningiomas and new treatment options based on targeting this gene.
Brain Tumor Survivor Celebrates Each Year with a Gift
After having a a lifesaving surgery to remove a fast-growing brain tumor, Prasad Inmula returns to Johns Hopkins annually for an MRI to check if the tumor has returned. With each visit, he makes a monetary gift. Some gifts are larger to correspond with survival milestone years, but most are around $1,000. Inmula’s gifts over the last 30 years have added up to a significant amount of funding for brain tumor research at Hopkins.
