Our founder, Birmingham attorney Ed Meyerson, was instrumental in recruiting former SEC and Conference USA Commissioner Mike Slive to help bring his vision to life. Thanks to Slive, who lent his name, time, and effort to build the foundation, we have a national audience and a unique niche within the collegiate sports community.
The mission of the Mike Slive Foundation for Prostate Cancer Research is to save lives by funding cutting-edge research and by raising awareness of prostate cancer. The Mike Slive Foundation has already had a major impact, especially in the state of Alabama. Since September 2017, we have funded seven cutting-edge prostate cancer research grants, and are positioned for unprecedented growth following new and renewed partnerships and sponsorships this year.
