The Cryptic Masons Medical Research Foundation (CMMRF) was incorporated in the state of Oklahoma, March 6, 1986. The driving force behind the new corporation was General Grand Master Ben Mandlebaum, of the General Grand Council International.The Foundation funds research at ICVBM, which is located at the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Because all blood vessels are very important in maintaining the health or in repairing almost all tissues, nearly all diseases turn out to have a vascular component involved in their origin or in tissue repair. Diabetes, stroke, poor leg circulation, difficult wound healing and many more diseases share a common denominator, blood vessels! Centering our contributions to an organi zation that helps so many different heal th concerns around the world allows our contributors to share in the medical advancements, regardless of their state or country. Through this research, we hope the causes and eventually a cure will be found for Diabetes and many other vascular related diseases.

CMMRF has grown exponentially over the years. Prior to restructuring the foundation in 1986, the former foundation had given $96,000.00 to the Medical Center for research. CMMRF has now given the I.U. School of Medicine $2,524,000.00. We feel that is an excellent record and we are proud of it.

Sometime in 2001-2002 our Lab became a Center of Vascular Biology and Medicine (not just Atherosclerosis). After a 3-year search for just the right person for this "Chair", Dr. Keith March was selected.

Our commitment to support research conducted at the ICVBM will translate into cures and treatments for almost all diseases! We urge you to consider partnering wi th the CMMRF mission to save lives and improve the quality of life.

Thank you for your efforts on behalf of the Foundation. We could not achieve our goals wi thout your help.

Fraternally and sincerely, 
Marion K. Crum Marion K. Crum, 
PMIGM Executive Secretary
