BOSTON (CBS) — A new social media campaign launched by Brigham and Women’s Hospital Tuesday aims to lead a global discussion about the impact of neurological diseases.

The campaign, called 50 Million Faces, is spearheaded by the hospital’s Ann Romney Center for Neurological Diseases.

Romney says it’s a place for the millions of people suffering from the five neurological diseases, to tell their stories and inspire hope.

People can share their experiences through the hashtag #50millionfaces, or share messages, upload photos and videos through 50MillionFaces.org
