About BCureful and Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) 

 

Julie Scroggins, founded the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization Bcureful to focus resources on Tuberous Sclerosis Complex, or TSC. TSC is a genetic disorder that affects one in 6,000 newborns causing non-malignant lesions to develop in the brain and other vital organs. Although the growths are almost always benign, they can cause devastating effects on multiple aspects of development. It’s estimated that one to two million people worldwide have TSC.  

 

Bcureful’s mission is dedicated to accelerating research towards a cure of Tuberous Sclerosis Complex while raising public awareness of the disorder. Research for TSC has led to breakthroughs in autism, epilepsy and some forms of cancer.  

 

“It is one of the most exciting times in medicine and especially in TSC research. The goals of the NYU Langone Medical Center and Bcureful are to help organize collaborative efforts to focus research on projects that can truly advance both our understanding of TSC, and most importantly, to improve care and treatment in the near future.” 

 

-Dr. Orrin Devinsky, NYU Langone Medical Center
