MossRehab and Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute (MRRI) are devoted to improving the lives of individuals with neurological disabilities through world-class research and outstanding clinical care. MRRI is grateful for the support of donors whose contributions have enabled the Institute to flourish and conduct meaningful scientific research over more than three decades.

Recently, Mr. Thomas Lloyd joined Einstein’s Legacy Circle with a bequest gift that will support research on stroke and Parkinson’s disease. Mr. Lloyd first became acquainted with MossRehab after he experienced a stroke in 2016. He received excellent care at MossRehab as a patient and has been dedicated to the missions of MossRehab and MRRI ever since. In addition to his personal connection with stroke, Mr. Lloyd’s late wife Susan lived with Parkinsonism, and this inspired him to support research on Parkinson’s disease being conducted in MRRI’s Cognitive-Motor Learning Laboratory directed by Aaron Wong, PhD.

“There are many institutions that research what causes Parkinson’s and how to cure it, but I think Moss’ approach to finding out how to make it more bearable through research is just as important, if not more,” remarked Mr. Lloyd. “I look at it, in general, as how do we make people feel better and cope better?”

In his will, Mr. Lloyd has designated a gift that will establish The Thomas Lloyd Stroke Research Fund and the Thomas Lloyd Parkinson’s Research Fund, two endowed funds at MRRI. These donations will support cutting-edge research, equipment, and technologies at the Institute.

“Rehabilitation research improves our understanding of neurological disorders such as stroke and Parkinson’s Disease and helps us identify ways to support better individuals living with these conditions, but these studies take time and require persistent efforts,” said Dr. Wong. “Donations such as Mr. Lloyd’s are therefore critical to sustaining such endeavors over the long term.”

Through his bequest gift, Mr. Lloyd’s generosity will continue to support MRRI’s innovative and impactful work for years to come. Contributions from Mr. Lloyd and other generous donors are instrumental in providing the resources necessary for MRRI to continue advancing the state of science in the field of neurorehabilitation.
