Bcureful to Host Wine Dinner for TSC Cure

Bcureful is a nonprofit started by a mother, Julie Scroggins, whose daughter was diagnosed with Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) in 2009.  It was a disease she had never heard of, and finding out that her own daughter had it spurred her to raise awareness and accelerate research toward a cure.

Affecting 1 in 6,000 newborns and approximately 1 to 2 million people worldwide, TSC is a genetic disorder that causes non-malignant tumors to develop in the brain and other vital organs.  A very high percentage of people with TSC develop epilepsy and Autism Spectrum Disorder.  Though there is no cure, a cure for TSC means there will be a positive influence on these diseases as well.

You can help Bcureful work towards a cure that will benefit millions.  The organization is holding its 2nd Annual Bcureful Wine Dinner on Thursday, June 27th at 6:30 PM.  It will take place at the Deer Path Inn: 

255 E. Illinois Road
Lake Forest, IL 60045

Make It Better Foundation is a very proud media sponsor of this event.  More details are on their website.
