The community is invited to “The God Box,” a performance starring Mary Lou Quinlan taking place on Wed. Oct. 24 at Gorton Community Center. Proceeds from the event benefit Bcureful, a volunteer non-profit charitable organization whose mission is to raise money for research for Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC). Visit www.bcureful.org for more information on the event, or scroll down to see the invite.
Julie Scroggins’ oldest daughter, Mary Ann, was diagnosed with TSC following a car accident in 2009. TSC is a genetic condition that causes tumors to grow in the vital organs (Brain, heart, lungs, kidneys, eyes and skin). “Diagnostic imaging done following her ‘accident’ found tumors in her brain and both kidneys,” said Julie. “We later learned that had this not been discovered when it was, things likely would have been more serious down the line. We decided to do all that we can to help find a cure and improve the lives of those affected and that is how Bcureful started.”
Julie said she met Mary Lou Quinlan in Chicago in the Spring of 2012 when she attended a private performance of The God Box. “I was very moved by her deep faith and her mother’s example of automatically turning her worries over to God. I went up and introduced myself to Mary Lou afterwards and asked her if she would ever consider holding a performance to benefit a charity. She later called me from her office in NYC to ask me all about Bcureful. She then offered to donate her performance and all proceeds to Bcureful!”
