Today, the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases at BWH is honored to launch 50 Million Faces. This initiative will raise awareness of five of the most complex neurologic diseases of our time—multiple sclerosis (MS), Alzheimer’s disease, ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), Parkinson’s disease and brain tumors by bringing together stories of those, and their loved ones, facing the devastating impacts of neurologic diseases.

Collectively, these diseases affect more than 50 million people worldwide. Together, our stories will inspire hope and increase focus on the need for funding research, treatments and cures. Join us by visiting 50MillionFaces.org. ‪#‎50MillionFaces‬
Share your personal story, or the story of a loved one. Post a short video, written text or photo and caption. How you tell your story is up to you—it could be a short, personal anecdote, a tribute to a loved one or a message of hope to others bravely facing these diseases.

Two years ago, Danielle Reny of Boston was running her hometown marathon, her family of avid runners cheering her on near the finish line, when the unthinkable happened.

The blast knocked Danielle off her feet, keeping her from finishing the race she had trained so hard for. But that quickly became unimportant. Her parents were injured, but it was her younger sister Gillian, a dancer since she was three, who had sustained the worst injuries.

All three were rushed to Brigham and Women's Hospital.
Gillian Reny, a dancer since she was 3, was injured by shrapnel in the Boston Marathon bombings; two years later, her family and other supporters are raising money to help her in her recovery.

In September, BWHC President Betsy Nabel spoke at TEDMED 2014 about the importance of humility. “The universe of what we don’t know dwarfs that of what we do know,” she said. “By having the intellectual courage to say, ‘I don’t know,’ we can give ourselves permission to feel comfortable in this uncomfortable place. And only then can we add, ‘I’m going to find out.’” +TEDMED 
Elizabeth “Betsy” Nabel, the President of Brigham and Women’s Hospital and a professor at Harvard Medical School, shares a personally revealing story that shows how the limits of knowledge can be a weakness and how accepting our ignorance can be a strength.

A new study from Brigham and Women's Hospital may help explain why glucose tolerance — the ability to regulate blood-sugar levels — is lower at dinner than at breakfast for healthy people, and why shift workers are at increased risk of #diabetes.

The Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Fund at BWH is one of many examples of how the Brigham community is turning tragedy into hope.

Established one year ago by the family of bombing survivor Gillian Reny, the fund raised nearly $4 million in its inaugural year, allocating more than $1.3 million to the Stepping Strong Research Scholars and Stepping Strong Innovator Awards – programs that support research in bone and skin regeneration and wound healing, as well as other innovative research in trauma treatment and recovery.

If you could gaze into a crystal ball and discover whether your newborn baby might have health problems, would you want to know?

This month, doctors in Boston will begin sequencing the genomes of healthy babies for the first time to explore the benefits and risks of sequencing at birth.

Can't say enough good things about this hospital. My wife saw her doctor due to some bleeding. This was followed by a biopsy and then a total hysterectomy. Everyone was very nice, efficient, and caring. She recovered from the operation much quicker than she could imagine. At the same time my brother-in-law collapsed while driving and after tests at his local hospital was rushed in to the Brigham for a heart bypass. He and his family praised everyone at the hospital and I can personally say that his room was the quietest, most spacious and comfortable hospital room I've seen.

I visited the ER one night. Very unsatisfactory experience. Overall, I did not feel welcome. The security guards were faux thugs(extremely unprofessional). The female who was supposed to start the process just ignored me. I suppose she was flirting with the male nurse with big arms sitting next to her. He was extremely rude and treated me as I wasn't even human. I suppose he was attempting to pick a fight with me because of his own self-doubt. The waiting room wasn't great. I don't think there were cups for water. Back in the ER more fornication. The cleaning staff were talking loudly with the clerks and being very disruptive. I let my nurse and doctor know however they refused to help. There was a doctor there with a MD/MBA he said something about "caring" for patients. I don't think he really cares at all. Horrible Experience.

I don't miss Boston at all but I defiantly miss Brigham and women's hospital. I am grateful I was under the care of this top listed hospital and I only wish DC Metro hospitals would get there act together.

I cannot believe the complaining people do--seriously, do you think you would do better at home on your own? No. My experience with BWH is very good, and I think the problem is people expect far too much. Hospitals do the best they can, and you can blame, politicians, lawyers, etc. for the troubles most of them experience. I must say, I found the 1-star post about the horrible labor and delivery and end of sex life at 29 hilarious!! I can only assume it was a joke.

Worst medical experience ever. Most condescending and arrogant people I have ever met and I have been in sales for 30+ years so I have met some real winners. Dr Bueno was rude and spoke to me like I was an uneducated bum. Complete disrespect. Complete disregard for my time or situation. Prices for basic services that were beyond absurd. The MRI and two other tests cost in excess of $10,800 and my local facility would have charged less than half. They are still doing "follow up" work and billing me hundreds of dollars even after I have made it clear that are no longer authorized to to ANYTHING for me. I believe that senior citizens should be tested for driving skills after age 60... Doctors should be tested for COMPASSION as well. If they were... Bueno and Sugarbaker would be taking orders at a burger joint.
