NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CurePSP will be featured in a prominent window display at 10 Rockefeller Center beginning Feb. 1 that will bring attention to prime of life neurodegeneration to hundreds of thousands of people. The display will run through the month of February.
“We are excited to be featured at this landmark location that is seen by people from around the world every day,” said David Kemp, President of CurePSP. “This visibility will help us to raise awareness of neurodegeneration, which is the great healthcare crusade of the 21st Century. We are very grateful to EHE International for the opportunity.”
“EHE International is delighted to host CurePSP in helping to gain attention for this important cause, and the efforts underway to find a treatment or cure for these devastating diseases,” added Deborah McKeever, President of EHE International.
Prime of life neurodegeneration comprises a spectrum of untreatable, fatal brain diseases that typically strike during middle age when people often have families, careers and active lives. More than 150,000 people in the U.S. alone are affected by these diseases.
The CurePSP display shows a woman’s silhouette with a crumpled paper “brain” representing a primary cause of prime of life neurodegeneration, the chain-reaction “misfolding” of brain proteins. Viewers will see a link, www.unfoldpsp.org, where they can learn more about prime of life neurodegeneration and may contribute through a text-to-donate address.
