The Basil H. Alkazzi Award [USA] was established in 1987 as a
 travel award to London. Soon after the format was changed, and
continued to change as the monetary  fund increased.  In 1988
in commemoration The Sheldon Bergh Award [USA] was
established for the best runner-up to the main award.

Basil Alkazzi himself an established painter has always reached
out to help other creative artists, and to this end in 1986
established The Basil H. Alkazzi Foundation Awards at the eminent
Royal College of Art, London, with an endowment set in trust and
perpetuity.  Each year the foundation gives a full scholarship 
award including maintenance for a two year MA course in Painting,
as well as three other awards. These awards are granted only after 
a student has been accepted at the College.

Enamored with America and all that it justly stands for, he 
reached out to help less fortunate fellow artists in the USA by
creating The Basil H. Alkazzi Award (USA) and soon after The
Sheldon Bergh Award (USA).  As the number of the applicants
 grew to a little over three hundred each year, and twice as many
requests for applications, these awards consumed some three
months of Basil Alkazzi's own creative time.

Each artist has been anointed with a  creative gift called talent
that each recipient of this blessed gift must protect, nurture
and nourish.

Basil Alkazzi felt he was neglecting his own creative talent.  As
he did not wish the awards  to run in an impersonal manner, he 
decided to close them.  The first year of the new century is the 
last year The Basil H. Alkazzi Award (USA) and The Sheldon 
Bergh Award (USA) were awarded.

It occurs in 1 out of every 30,000 people. Copper is a trace mineral that our bodies need in small amounts. Most people get a lot more copper from food than they need. However, most people are also able to excrete the excess copper. People with wilson’s disease cannot excrete the copper they do not need. As a result, copper begins to build up in the liver right after birth and eventually damaging the organ. When the liver can no longer hold the excess copper, the mineral goes into the bloodstream. It travels to other organs and may damage the brain, central nervous system, kidneys, and eyes. This disease is fatal unless it is treated before serious illness develops. Blood supply and liver copyright â© nucleus medical media, inc. Causes in most cases, wilson’s disease is inherited as an autosomal recessive condition. A person must receive altered genes from both parents to develop the disease. People with only one altered gene may never have symptoms and may not need treatment. However, they can pass the altered gene on to their children. The gene for wilson's disease is on chromosome 13 and is called atp7b. Many different mutations in this gene can produce the same condition, all of which are currently termed wilson’s disease. Risk factors a risk factor is something that increases your chance of getting a disease or condition. The only known risk factor for wilson's disease is a family history of the disease. It tends to be most common in eastern europeans, sicilians, and southern italians.
