Bcureful’s annual fundraiser dinner at Tempel Farms.
We’re setting a place for you at our table overlooking the Tempel Farm’s Stables for a dinner you’ll never forget. It’s Bcureful’s Kitchen Table Campaign.
Join us at the table to raise money to bring expert medical care to the home and kitchen tables of TSC families wherever they live. Don’t miss this down home country casual evening of catered dinner buffet from The Shanty by Chef Dimitri, Live music and Lippizan stable tours. Get your denim and dancing boots on and be ready for one exciting evening!
WHAT IS BCUREFUL RAISING FUNDS FOR?
In July 2015, Bcureful and the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance launched the Telehealth/Telemedicine Initiative” as the first step towards fulfilling a common goal, which is to improve access to affordable care for those affected by tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) and enable healthcare providers to consult with TSC experts utilizing video teleconferencing technology.
We are fortunate to have a champion advocate of telemedicine–Dr. John J. Bissler, MD, a TSC kidney expert who developed a Telemedicine Program at LeBonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis, TN. Dr. Bissler is Director of the Tuberous Sclerosis Center of Excellence and the Division of Nephrology at LeBonheur and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The plan in 2016 is to launch a pilot program to provide access to Dr. Bissler’s expertise via his video conferencing system.
More details about this initiative will be coming soon. Please save the date – proceeds will provide the seed money for this project.
