Investment executive Sean Healey leads $40m donation to Mass. General to fight ALS
Soon after Sean Healey learned he had been stricken with ALS, he decided to fight back in the best way he knew how: by investing in the search for a solution.
The fruits of that decision became public on Wednesday, when Massachusetts General Hospital said it will launch the Sean M. Healey and AMG Center for ALS, funded by $40 million-plus in donations. The Healey Center will help coordinate research efforts into finding better ways to treat — and eventually cure — the fatal neurodegenerative disease.
