Dive In to a Sea of Hope recognizes individuals living with Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome
CSSi is proud to announce it will be a sponsor of the Dive In to a Sea of Hope fundraiser on Saturday, October 28, 2017, at the National Aquarium in Baltimore, MD. Produced by the LGS Foundation, a New York-based non-profit organization dedicated to providing information about Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome (LGS), the event is aimed at recognizing LGS and International LGS Awareness Day, which is celebrated annually on November 1.
It is estimated that less than 50,000 individuals in the United States live with LGS. LGS is a rare and often a debilitating form of epilepsy that involves frequent seizures and affects children and adults. There is currently no cure for this disorder.
“CSSi is honored to have the opportunity to support such a worthy cause and the LGS Foundation, which is committed to improving the lives of individuals with LGS through research, programs and education,” said Chris Trizna, president, CSSi. “As an active member of the LGS community, CSSi works to develop and execute recruitment plans with multiple tactics designed to reach and educate individuals and families affected by the disease as well as create study awareness in sites’ communities.”
Over the years, CSSi has provided support to hundreds of neurology and primary care sites so they are able to efficiently screen patients within the desired enrollment timeline. The patient recruitment company has completed over 150+ CNS/neurology programs, including over 20 focused on epilepsy in pediatric and adolescent patients. CSSi’s innovative methods and technologies have also successfully enrolled and retained thousands of patients in many rare disease clinical trials, such as Meniere's disease, hemophilia A, amyloidosis, multiple myeloma, just to name a few.
The event will start at 6 p.m. and include a self-guided, one-hour tour, followed by a reception with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. To learn more about the LGS Foundation and purchase tickets for the upcoming event, please visit: www.lgsfoundation.org.
