Neurological Disease -

HAILEY, Idaho, June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Charles D. (Chuck) Peebler was recognized and honored at his home in Hailey, Idaho on June 17, 2008, for his support to find a cure for the devastating neurological brain disease Progressive Supernuclear Palsy (PSP), which is often misdiagnosed as Alzheimer's or Parkinson's disease. Chuck has had PSP for several years and, despite his illness, he and his wife Toni have worked tirelessly to raise money for research and to support education through their foundation, the Peebler PSP Research Foundation (http://www.peeblerpspresearch.org) and CurePSP -- the Society for Progressive Supernuclear Palsy (http://www.curepsp.org).

Since 2005, the Peebler family has raised over $2 million dollars. These funds have supported PSP research and, in particular, the potential breakthrough program which will conduct a full genome-wide analysis of PSP. These results are being shared with scientists around the world and will open doors to the cause and prevention of PSP.

Because of Chuck's work during the past years as a board member of CurePSP, he will be named a "Transformational Benefactor" by the Board of Directors of the organization. A ceremony to mark this occasion was held at the Peebler residence on June 17th.

"Without a doubt, Chuck Peebler has done more for the cause of PSP research in the past five years than any other person or foundation. We are truly grateful for his involvement with CurePSP," said Richard Gordon Zyne, President-CEO of CurePSP.

PSP is a fatal, degenerative brain disease that has no known cause, treatment or cure. It causes complete disability by progressively impairing all movement, balance, vision, speech and swallowing. CurePSP's vision is a world free of PSP and it works to increase awareness, fund research toward a cure, and educate healthcare by professionals.
