Alex also serves as the president of the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Foundation, founded in 2001.

Having suffered from Lyme disease herself, her foundation aims to help Lyme and tickborne disease research, underserved communities, children, and sustainability.

Moreover, prior to Alex’s relationship with Steve, she was a single mother, and Steve also had two kids from his previous marriage with Patricia.

She asked for more child support and accused her ex of filing a separate income tax return the year after he filed for divorce.

The Cohen couple reportedly put out $5 million to fund the effort to bring mind-bending psychedelic drugs into the mainstream.

This donation was made by the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Foundation to MAPS, the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelics Studies.

MAPS is financially entrenched in pushing the US Food and Drug Administration to approve MDMA to treat post-traumatic stress disorder.

They plan on submitting a new drug application for MDMA, and if it gets approved by FDA to assist in PTSD treatment, MAPS plans to start a fund to give individuals in need access to MDMA.
