In a press release issued yesterday, OMF detailed how it intends to use these funds:
- create a diagnostic test to detect chronic fatigue syndrome
- benefit from better analysis of patient data
- accelerate the development of a new technology that would better identify treatment options
- conduct research to find a cure
The Pineapple Fund does not intend to stop there
This new donation could help, on its scale, to revive the emblem of the ecosystem crypto-currencies – while these are sometimes presented as assets that would benefit primarily criminals.
Ms. Tannenbaum founded the OMF to help her daughter, but also the millions of people who suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. The foundation brings together prominent members of the Scientific Advisory Board , including Nobel laureates and members of the National Academy of Sciences .
Here’s what Pine said to justify his decision:
“I have known this syndrome for some time, and I know it is a serious disorder, which lacks funds for research and treatment. I received letters from renowned researchers who supported the OMF, and this helped me make my decision. “
This was not the first donation from the Pineapple Fund , which has already awarded $ 37 million to other charities. And he does not plan to stop there: Pine has committed to pay a total of $ 86 million.
