Meet Olivia, from Maurice, Louisiana. Olivia was diagnosed two years ago with a rare disease called Infantile Neuroaxonal Dystrophy, also know as INAD (pronounced iNAD). This the same gene as Parkenson's with Dystonia. Olivia was a walking, talking, and smiling little girl until 18 months old, when she slowly lost her ability to bear weight on her legs, then lost her ability to crawl, sit, roll over, and speak. Because of this Olivia is unable to do the things we take for granted every day!
As the New Year approaches, Olivia challenges you to make a list of 1-5 things you "can't" do and commit to doing them.
PLEASE! Make a pledge of $1.00 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 t your personal goal to accomplish these things because YOU can.
iCAN for iNAD means: "Do it because YOU can!"
1. Exercise daily.
2. Eat healthier.
3. Volunteer in my community.
4. Be kinder, and do more for others.
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...

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 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.
