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.

Brigham and Women's Hospital is the only hospital in New England testing a new web device that is used to treat brain #aneurysms

Nancy Kleiman is one of the many healers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, but not the kind with a medical degree.

Kleiman’s job is to play the #harp. Every day, she moves around Brigham’s hallways, lobbies, and patient rooms, her fingers on the strings of her instrument — a 35-pound, 30-string Celtic harp. Her ethereal melodies are a welcome distraction for patients and their families as many cope with difficult illnesses.

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.
