"To bring together the best minds in medicine to find life-saving cures and ensure that we are always at the forefront of NMO research, advocacy and education."

What's important to us?



Patients always come first. We are listening and want to help support NMO patients and their loved ones.



We believe the cure to NMO is rooted in science-driven research. By funding essential studies, we can accelerate the process.



Every day we're spreading awareness about NMO. Sharing the latest findings is crucial to improving lives.
