Howard’s greatest wish was to find peace of mind. A talented musician and decorated military veteran, he ended his battle with depression on July 4, 2013. My brother Howard was a smart and generous person, willing to help anyone, do anything, anytime. By updating my understanding of the brain, I have gained a new appreciation for it and a new respect for his struggles. It is my goal to carry on my brothers’ generosity by using my talents and ambitions to help people improve their lives and careers.
In tribute to my brother, Howard W. Pope, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of my book “Agile Changed My Life” will directly benefit the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation. Throughout its short history, the foundation has become the go-to organization for researching disorders in children and adults such as depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, autism, ADHD, PTSD, and anxiety.
