THE STORY:

Grace challenges YOU! Because you can.

Meet Grace, from Hillsboro, IL. Grace was diagnosed in November with a rare diseases called Infantile Neuroaxonal Dystrophy, also known as INAD (pronounced iNAD). This is the same gene as Parkinson’s with Dystonia. Grace began to show signs of INAD when she was about 18 months old, never learning to walk on her own and only saying a handful of words.

This fundraiser is raising money to help fund a study for treatment options with Dr. Paul Kotzbauer at Washington University in St. Louis. Currently, there are no treatments and no cure for INAD. Most children with this disease do not live to see their second decade.

As the New Year approaches Grace challenges you to make a list of 1-5 things you “can’t” do and commit to doing them. Make a pledge of $1 or more to show your commitment, then nominate three friends to accept the challenge.

Conquer these goals in a month or a year, but make it your personal goal to accomplish these things because YOU can.

iCAN for iNAD means: “Do it because YOU can!

I CAN

1. Run a 5k
2. Do 100 pushups
3. Learn beginner Spanish
4. Eat healthier
5. Help fund a cure for I.N.A.D. by donating!

Turn your “I CAN’T” into "I CAN" today! Share your goals, your progress, and your success… #ican4inad #ican4jake #whatcanudo

When you donate be sure to share your goals with us in the comments! We want to hear them!

iCAN for iNAD

About twenty-one families in the world share the Infantile Neuroaxonal Dystrophy (iNAD) diagnosis. The link between iNAD and Parkinson’s proves that if we can cure one, we can cure both! This inspiring fundraiser, iCAN for iNAD, is presented by a certified 501c3 founded by one of the 21 iNAD families, Ainsley’s Angels. Funds of this project will fund research for (iNAD) and mobility by providing jogging chairs to all types of special needs individuals.
