19 Feb A Note from our CEO: Help us Create our Future Today
Dear Community Members, Friends, Supporters, Former Patients, and Future Patients:
At NeuroCures™, our vision of the future is charting our course for the present. Futurists call this our “inner vision” – the force that shapes what we say and do.
Fulfilling our Mission One Patient at a Time
We are advancing cures and innovating care to help make a difference in the lives of patients with Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS), Spinal Cord Injury, and Acquired Head Injury resulting in Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS).
The Time to Act is Now
SBS is the leading cause of physical child abuse in the U.S. Over 25 percent of SBS babies die from the effects of this condition. The abuse is usually triggered from the frustration of a baby crying. According to the National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome, this condition costs the U.S. $16.8 billion annually in research, patient care and long term disability.
Creating a Vision of Hope
Our paradigm shifting SBS disease model is the first innovation of its kind in 75 years and the most advanced predictive analytical model in the world. This novel technology can evaluate head trauma and pharmaceutical interventions with a precision that can help mitigate the effects of advanced trauma and long term disabilities.
Case Study: Baby Lucia
Baby Lucia, 18 months old, weighing 26 pounds with dark hair and bright blue eyes, presented at the Emergency Room at St. Francis with no external signs of injury. She was listless – abnormal for a baby of her age. No other injuries were apparent. Test results indicated internal bleeding. Baby Lucia was eventually diagnosed with Shaken Baby Syndrome. She will suffer the effects of her head trauma for the rest of her life.
Research Saves Lives
Without research, there is no cure. Your generosity allows us to discover and apply breakthrough approaches to help babies like Lucia and prevent a fatal or permanent disability. Our Halo Effect™ is a proprietary research process that accelerates cures. By leveraging the Halo Effect™, the cures we discover for one disease leads to advances and cures for other similar diseases.
We Can Do More Together
We have a history of unparalleled stewardship and consistent scientific breakthroughs. Join us!
Winston Churchill once said, “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
