bcureful donation check

Members of the board of Bcureful present their donation to the staff of the Tuberous Sclerosis Center at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.

 

After attending M2W® in 2011, Julie Scroggins, VP & CFO of family-owned and operated Waukegan Tire and Supply Company in suburban Chicago, was inspired by the women she heard on stage and decided it was time to do something she had been thinking about for a while – she launched Bcureful, a non-profit organization whose mission is to accelerate research towards a cure for Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) and raise awareness about this genetic disorder that her own daughter had been diagnosed with a few years earlier. She was awarded the Full Circle Award in 2012 which is given to marketers or business leaders who have best demonstrated how the M2W conference has positively impacted their work or has given them the impetus to start something new. In Julie’s case, she created something where once there was nothing. As of today, Bcureful has made contributions to the Comprehensive Epilepsy Center at NYU Langone Medical Center for TSC research and to Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago to aid in the development of their new TSC Center. Visit Bcureful.org to learn more about TSC and the road to a cure.
