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
