The key mission of the Mary Seau Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) Foundation is to raise funds that will aid in the investigation of the long-term effects from repetitive head impacts sustained during contact sports, military conflicts or other potentially hazardous environments.
Our goal is to work with the research institution to develop imaging techniques to correlate pathological changes and abnormalities so that high-tech imaging tools can be used to screen the presence of early CTE.
Our vision is to increase awareness and education in an effort to detect and treat early stage brain trauma and enrich the lives of individuals who have been affected.
At the core of our foundation is our desire to obey the Golden Rule: do unto others as you would have others do unto you. We also believe in respect for all life.
Mary Seau, founder of the CTE Foundation, envisions this organization to be the recognized leader in creating an environment that brings together physicians, patients and research groups to identify the root causes and, ultimately, cure the effects of CTE. We will do so under a mantra of integrity and accountability, where our actions will bring about HOPE to those who join in our mission.
