Date:10/2/2013

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 02, 2013

Bcureful®—a non-profit organization whose mission is to accelerate research towards a cure for Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC)—presented its inaugural donation in the amount of $20,000.00 to launch the new Tuberous Sclerosis Complex Center at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.

Lurie Children’s is considered one of the top children’s hospitals in the country and is a recognized leader in pediatric patient care, research, education and advocacy. Bcureful Founder and Chair Julie Scroggins and Bcureful Board member Lori Nerheim presented the check to Dr. Douglas R. Nordli, Jr. who heads the Epilepsy Center of Excellence and Dr. Srishti Nangia who will lead the new TSC Center.

They have an outstanding team across all the various subspecialties already assembled and plan to have the program piloted by the end of the year.

Dr. Nangia explained, “Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) is a genetic disorder that involves multiple organ systems and potentially can cause serious medical issues. Fortunately, new diagnostic techniques and therapeutic advances bring the promise of improved outcomes. We have an excellent team of experts in multiple subspecialties at Ann & Robert H.

Bcureful Founder Julie Scroggins added, “We are extremely honored to pre
