Please join us celebrating Collinโ€™s life on his 16th birthday and donate $16 to NMO research.

A rare autoimmune disease called neuromyelitis optica (NMO) took Collin away from us when he was 9 years old in 2012. For what would have been his 16th birthday, our wish is to help other NMO patients find a cure. Today, life-saving medical advances are in progress and your support can make an impact. Collin might still be alive today if treatment options were identified earlier and clinical trials were in progress like they are today.

The foundation of our choice is The Guthy-Jackson Charitable Foundation, a nonprofit family foundation spearheading advances in research, which has aided in securing the only clinical trials to date, and that helped rewrite the book on how to diagnose this life-threatening disease. NMO is most commonly misdiagnosed as multiple sclerosis (MS).

100 percent of your donation goes to research.

Please donate now and help us keep Collin’s memory alive.

Thank you for your support,

The McDaniel Family
