The Courtney Project, Inc. is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization focused on the rare and severe opportunistic infection, progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy, aka "PML." Their mission is to provide informational materials that will raise awareness about PML in both the medical and non-medical communities, leading to early detection and recognition of PML. The main goal is to help assure that affected patients receive treatment in a timely fashion. The organization produces and circulates a variety of educational tools, including literature and videos, that are available to medical personnel, schools, and all interested individuals both within and outside the US. PML occurs during periods of specific immune suppression, at which time the JC virus, normally dormant, multiplies and attacks the white matter of the brain, leading to severe, potentially fatal neurological damage.
