The Courtney Project 501(c)3 (TCP) in Orlando, Florida is the only existing nonprofit organization that was established for the sole purpose of educating the public about the rare and deadly JC virus.
We accept speaking engagements addressing anyone affected with or living with PML (Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy), a rare brain infection caused by the JC virus. This deadly virus, which lies dormant in 85 to 90% of the world's population, also causes shingles. Most immunosuppressive drugs also cause PML.
Our mission is to increase awareness and find a cure for PML and the JC virus through education and research.
