The Bluefield Project – funding research to cure FTD

I just became aware of this organization that funds research for FTD.

From their web site:

Bluefield Project“The Bluefield Project was established in 2010 to fund research directed towards curing frontotemporal dementia (FTD). Frontotemporal dementia is a devastating, early-onset degenerative brain disease and is recognized as a common cause of dementia in people under the age of 60 years.”

“The Bluefield Project was founded by a family group whose lives have been directly impacted by frontotemporal dementia. Frustrated that there were no treatment prospects on the horizon for frontotemporal dementia, this family provided funds to the University of California, San Francisco to form the Consortium for Frontotemporal Dementia Research (CFR). The Bluefield Project intends to raise awareness and increase support to accelerate frontotemporal dementia research.”
