Advocacy for All

Enhance Wellness Experience Through Education & Advocacy

Every person affected by NMOSD or MOGAD has a unique journey.  Immune systems change over a lifespan, therapies affect people differently, and disability is not a simple yes or no question.

 

Beyond any symptom or serology - beyond any treatment or trial - patients are people first. In this respect, no two people affected by NMOSD or MOGAD are the same.  Each has a life story and identity that makes them unique.  Each of us is going through something.

Well being is a balance of many different aspects of living, including mind, body, and spirit.

 

A GJCF mission priority is to help personalize & enhance well being through education and advocacy.  The best information is essential for the best outcomes, and we are stronger when we act together.

We study disability. We promote resilience.

GJCF believes that the best approach to wellness is to focus on the person not the disease.  Through our CIRCLES program, we have pioneered new studies to flip the script:  we study disability but we promote resilience- and everyone can use a little help through advocacy. With our interactive workshops including very popular Artistry iNMOtion sessions, Hear My Voice patient & caregiver story telling and other programs, we focus on ability not disability. GJCF promotes advocacy for all.
