Mission Statement

Increase awareness of progressive supranuclear palsy, corticobasal degeneration, and other atypical Parkinsonian disorders; fund research toward treatment, cure and prevention; educate healthcare professionals; and provide support, information, and hope for affected persons and their families.

Description

Progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), corticobasal degeneration (CBD), and multiple system atrophy (MSA), are little-known but disabling brain diseases, sometimes called atypical Parkinsonian disorders. These rare neurodegenerative diseases are often misdiagnosed as Parkinson's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Alzheimer’s disease. PSP, CBD and MSA lead to progressive decline, and although symptomatic treatment exists, there is no known cause or cure.

The Foundation for PSP | CBD and Related Brain Diseases, better known as CurePSP, assists patients and their families in their struggle against these debilitating diseases, increases public awareness, educates healthcare professionals, and supports research toward better diagnosis, effective treatments, and eventual cures.
