Bcureful® Aids in the Development of New Tuberous Sclerosis Complex Center at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago
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.

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.
