Actress and CurePSP National Spokesperson Patricia Richardson will be appearing on ABC's television show Last Man Standing on January 9, 2015. She will be wearing two things that she wore on Home Improvement many years ago, which are in surprisingly good shape. In her first scene, a plaid light flannel shirt, and later in the episode a short plaid Ellen Tracy jacket that got a lot of screen time on Home Improvement. After the episode airs, Patricia will auction the items off to raise money for CurePSP! Please spread the word and tell your friends not to miss the episode or the auction! Pictures to come soon!

Our high-tech process of pharmaceutical research is broken — and the solution might be old-fashioned trial and error.

Unlocking the Secrets of Brain Disease
Introduction
CurePSP is the leading nonprofit organization working to improve awareness, education, care, and cure for devastating Prime of Life neurodegenerative diseases. These include progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), corticobasal degeneration (CBD), multiple system atrophy (MSA), and others. They often strike in the midst of a person’s career and active life, when they have important family responsibilities. Their symptoms are incapacitating and there are no known causes, treatments, or cures.

Research has shown that there are important links between the relatively rare Prime of Life diseases and more common neurodegenerative conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. Your support will help advance this research, provide resources for families and caregivers of patients, and better educate the healthcare community.
