Campbell Raises Tourettes Awareness

Subscribe To:

Actress Neve Campbell invested a staggering $1.9 million (GBP1 million) into a movie about Tourette's Syndrome - because she wanted to raise awareness about the illness her younger brother suffers.

DAMIAN, now 24, was diagnosed with the disorder, typified by outbursts of uncontrollable foul language, when he was just eight-years-old - and the Scream star wants A PRIVATE WAR to show the world Tourette's sufferers aren't crazy.

The 31-year-old says, "It seemed so unfair that my life was going so well while my little brother was suffering. I felt guilty and helpless, wanting to do something to make it stop.

"It feels good to be able to use my success to help others like Damian, to spread the word that people with TS are not crazy."
