The Guthy-Jackson Charitable Foundation is dedicated to funding basic science research to find answers that will lead to the prevention, clinical treatment programs and a potential cure for Neuromyelitis Optica (NMO) Spectrum Disease. The decision to create our Foundation came from a personal family crisis. Our daughter was officially diagnosed with NMO in June 2008. Since that time, we have met with many clinicians and researchers in order to understand what this means for our beautiful daughter and our family. Additionally, we have gathered and read every piece of information and NMO research article that is available on the Web. We are now beginning to understand that NMO is not only considered an orphan disease, but that very little research is available. We met with the All Greater Good Foundation in early July 2008 when it became clear that there is little-to-no funding available to research this rare and often misunderstood disease. We joined hands with the All Greater Good Foundation to immediately begin our work, and thus, The Guthy-Jackson Charitable Foundation was born. The Guthy-Jackson Charitable Foundation is dedicated to funding biomedical research in the search to understand the pathophysiology and biochemistry of NMO Spectrum Disease. It is our greatest hope that together we will reverse the effects of NMO and eventually cure this disease.
