When Payton Barragan was diagnosed with NMO last winter, she lost her ability to play basketball.  Payton wanted to find a way to help others who suffer from this disease or those who have not yet been identified. On Tuesday, November 14th, the Lady Indians basketball team from Portage High School, in Portage, Indiana, will host NMO Awareness Night to raise money for the Guthy Jackson Research Foundation, Inc. for NMO research.
