Jason Hope knows that there are many different diseases that become more prevalent in people as they get older. Some of these include high blood pressure, cancer, arthritis, and osteoporosis, and the failing healthcare system continues to focus on treating them individually rather than looking to take care of them as a whole. In 2010, Hope did more than talk about how to help, instead, he donated $500,000 out of his own pocket to the SENS Foundation, which is a nonprofit organization that is looking to directly deal with the issues that people face as they age.
The Chief Science Officer and leader of SENS, Aubrey de Grey, helped to found SENS, which has offices in Mountain View, California. De Grey has donated over $10 million of his own money to also see that the organization is as successful as possible. After his donation was announced, Jason Hope gave a speech where he praised the work of the foundation and brought light to the unique way that it looks to fight age related diseases. He also talked about how he hopes that the work that SENS does is able to benefit all of the human race. Mike Kope, CEO of SENS, also commented on the fact that Jason Hope’s donation would help the organization to move forward much quicker than it was going to be able to do.
Aubrey de Grey pointed out that Hope’s $500,000 donation will go to specifically help the foundation with its work to prevent high blood pressure from occurring in the first place and will also help with work to keep the skin from deteriorating.
Jason Hope wasn’t the only one involved with helping the SENS Foundation, and after Hope’s donation, Peter Thiel, co-founder of PayPal, hopped on-board and donated $1 million of his own. He had plenty of positive words about Jason Hope, as well, who, on top of his donations, has been working to increase awareness of research related to anti-aging. In response, Hope expressed that he is more than happy to be a part of SENS and its efforts to combat age-related-diseases through non-conventional means, because conventional medicine is failing in this area.
Jason Hope is an Arizona-based entrepreneur who has recently published his book “Understanding the Internet-of-Things Revolution: A quick guide for thriving in the IoT era.” His book reveals what the future might look like as technology rapidly begins to change and people begin to adopt more tech that is interconnected.
