BENEFITING: GBS CIDP FOUNDATION
Our hope is to fund more research on the rare disease, CIDP, to create new treatment options for those that do not respond to the currently approved CIDP treatments and one day cure CIDP.
Our dad, Dario Ocampo, was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disorder, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP), in October 2012 and passed away October 24, 2013. CIDP is when immune cells that normally protect the body from foreign infection begin incorrectly attacking the nerves in the body instead.
The GBS/CIDP Foundation International began over 30 years ago as a support group for patients & families impacted by Guillain‐Barré syndrome, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) or any of the variants that exist. Their commitment has been to provide support to those affected by these disorders so that every patient obtains an early diagnosis, proper treatment & the opportunity for a full recovery.
We love you dad!
