Kennedy's Disease is a rare disorder. It is estimated that only 1-in-40,000 have this genetic defect. Because of this, Kennedy's Disease is often initially misdiagnosed or goes undiagnosed for years. The Kennedy's Disease Association (KDA) works to increase awareness in the medical community as well as improve public awareness of this disease.
Since its inception, Brent's Place has remained the only hospital approved "Safe-Clean" housing facility for immune compromised patients and their families, providing a living environment that is essential to healing and recovery. Conveniently located near the Anschutz Medical Campus, Brent's Place is designed to offer families "Safe-Clean" individualized housing in an environment virtually free from dander, dust, mold and other infectious agents. Brent's Place, a program and facility created by the Brent Eley Foundation, bridges the gap between the hospital and going home.

Perkins School for the Blind
Perkins School for the Blind is an innovative leader in serving people with visual impairments. Strong leadership from both staff and the Board of Trustees has created a legacy of education and discovery. We are always questioning how to best serve our students in the classroom, in the community and around the world. The rich history of Perkins began with its founding over 180 years ago as the first school for the blind in the United States. Within a few short years, Perkins became known for its effective instructional techniques, including teaching Laura Bridgman, the first known deafblind person to be educated.
