Harry Potter scribe JK Rowling has made a huge donation of $15.4 million to setup a multiple sclerosis research and testing clinic at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. The clinic will be named after Rowling’s mother Anne, who was killed by the disease.

“I have just turned 45, the age at which my mother, Anne, died of complications related to her MS,” Rowling said in a statement on Tuesday. “I know that she would rather have had her name on this clinic than on any statue, flower garden or commemorative plaque, so this donation is on her behalf, too; and in gratitude for everything she gave me in her far-too-short life.”

It’s the single-largest donation ever received by the university — and the largest that Rowling has ever handed out. Her fortune, thanks to the popular Harry Potter series, is estimated to hover somewhere close to $800 million.

“I cannot think of anything more important, or of more lasting value, than to help the university attract world-class minds in the field on neuroregeneration, to build on its long and illustrious history of medical research and, ultimately, to seek a cure for a very Scottish disease,” Rowling added.
