PENTAGON Makes Donation To Help Patients With Neuromuscular Disease
PENTAGON visited Gangnam Severance Hospital’s Respiration Rehabilitation Center and donated 50 million won (approximately $44,500) for patients suffering from rare neuromuscular diseases.
PENTAGON’s leader Hui said, “Our agency’s CEO is suffering from ALS, and we’re very aware of it. So we know that the public awareness of these illnesses is very low and that there aren’t many policies or economic support. Starting with our small act, we hope that people become more aware of it.”
A neuromuscular disease degrades motor nerves or muscles and impairs the functioning of muscles. Lou Gehrig’s disease, also known as ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), muscle disease, and spinal muscular atrophy are types of neuromuscular disease.
Professor Choi Won Ah of Gangnam Severance Hospital’s Respiration Rehabilitation Center said, “We thank PENTAGON for the donation and support. We hope that starting from this donation, social awareness and support for neuromuscular disease continues to rise.”
