On the evening of May 30 in Las Vegas, the nonprofit Keep Memory Alive feted Steven Lagos for his longtime support. The group’s mission is to provide enhanced treatments to patients and families of patients dealing with neurocognitive disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease.
Over the past 20 years, Lagos has created custom pieces for the group’s auctions and has donated more than $1 million in jewelry to Keep Memory Alive to help it raise money. Additionally, Lagos has donated funds toward updating the interior of the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, a facility that provides state-of-the-art care for patients with Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and related conditions.
“Having two grandparents who suffered from Alzheimer’s, I have seen firsthand the debilitating effects these diseases have on the victims and the incredible emotional and physical strains that it creates within their families,” Lagos told the media upon release of the news. “I passionately support the clinic’s mission to enhance patients’ and caregivers’ lives during this difficult time, while working to find a cure.”
