PRF and Boston Bruins Team Up to “Find the Other 150”!


Bruins Forward Milan Lucic and Sam. Lucic’s family is from Serbia, and he and several family members currently live in Canada. He recorded PSAs in both English and Serbian that are now airing in Canada and Serbia. We hope this will raise awareness of Progeria, and that families and physicians of children in those countries will reach out to PRF for help.

In an exciting expansion of PRF's global campaign to find all children with Progeria, The Progeria Research Foundation has joined forces with members of the Boston Bruins, creating Public Service Announcements (PSA’s) featuring players from Central and Eastern Europe, and Canada.

Recorded in both English and their native languages, the PSA's are being distributed in the Czech Republic, Finland, Serbia, Slovakia and Canada, as well as to US outlets with ties to those countries.

Bruins Captain Zdeno Chara, from Slovakia

Bruins Center David Krejci, from the Czech Republic

Bruins Forward Milan Lucic, from Serbia and Canada

Bruins Goalie Tuukka Rask, from Finland

The "Find the Other 150" campaign has been remarkably successful in the countries where PRF has been able to penetrate, with a 130% increase in the number of children identified as of January 2015 – AMAZING! However, central and eastern Europe remain a challenge. Partnering with Bruins players from these countries gives PRF the unique opportunity to raise awareness about Progeria, and find more children to help. Many thanks to our NHL friends and the Boston Bruins Foundation for this unique support.
