Since 2014 your donations came in a wide range of amounts. Every penny is a blessing fin launching this "new disease model." You keep the website up and allow us to create conferences, fly doctors to events, and assist with “micro grants” for research whose results ripple out to affect change.
Your gifts helped allow doctors attend the first meeting of the Consortium in 2014. We know there are a lot of unmet needs. We receive these calls and email daily BUT REFLECT on how far we have come in 3 years.
We are determined to go into ORGANIZED HYPERSPEED in 2018 and pull in more consensus, awareness and, yes, research funding.
Here is a small list of areas your money helped fund (for more info see our website

Since 2014 we have spent $85K on conferences - flying doctors here and there, staffing, literature, renting of conference spaces, etc. We always make our money back but we need funds to initiate these events. Thank YOU!
Researchers, doctors and parents reach out to us continually for grant funding. WE HEAR YOU! and in 2018 WE DETERMINE TO HAVE COURAGE, BE STEADY LIKE FLOWING WATER and DO MORE to Ensure a Solid Future for Our Chidlren!
