Reno Helps Fight “Childhood Alzheimer’s”

Reno Supports Childhood Alzheimers and Neurological Brain Disorders, Parkinsons, ALSBiggest Little Community In The World Supports Finding Cure

Reno, Nevada, may be known as the “Biggest Little City in the World,” but the City also has the title of the “Biggest Little Community in the World.”  Since our identical twin 4 year old twins, Addi and Cassi, received a devastating medical diagnosis of Niemann Pick Type C — otherwise known as “Childhood Alzheimer’s (featured on ABC’s Good Morning America) — we have received an outpouring of support from the Reno community to help us fight this fatal disease that robs children of their ability to walk, talk and eat. On May 10th, 2008, the Reno community came together for the “Moonlight Garden Gala – A Night Of Hope and Miracles” at the Downtown Reno Ballroom to help raise money for research into this devastating and mysterious brain disorder. Millions of American’s are facing Alzheimer’s disease and every 71 seconds someone in America develops the disease.  NPC children like Addi and Cassi may hold important clues to helping researchers understand brain disorders of all types.  No person, whether young or old, should face death of the mind before death of the body and treatments and cures need to be developed. Here are some of the amazing events that have taken place in recent weeks in Reno to help raise money and awareness of brain disorders and "Childhood Alzheimers."

  • Claim Jumper Fundraiser: On April 24th, Claim Jumper hosted an evening to raise money for the Addi and Cassi Fund with 10% of all proceeds earned that evening going to the fund. Thanks to Cara Hamm for organizing the event — we raised $2,358.33!
  • Sierra Strength and Speed: Joe Dibble, one of Nevada’s leading dietitians and nutritionists, donated 100% of the proceeds from “Wednesday’s Workout Evening” at the WB Baseball Softball Training Center.  Everyone worked up a sweat, including Addi and Cassi, and Joe and his volunteers helped raise $1,345.00!
  • On Thursday, May 8, 2008, Bishop Manogue Catholic High School held a "Miracle Minute" to raise funds to aid in the research necessary to find a cure for Niemann Pick Type C.
  • CureCaps party – Jennifer Dolder and her two children organized a CureCaps hat making party at their house – over 50 caps were made to help raise money for research

Thank you Reno for your support! Posted by Chris (Mom)
