THE STORY:

Dear Family & Friends,

Many of you have heard my college friend's devastating news.  Gordon Gray and his wife, Kristen, are up against the most unfathomable and heartwrenching battle and race to save their daughters' lives.  This year their beautiful daughters, CHARLOTE & GWENYTH, have been diagnosed with Batten CNL6, a rare neurodegenerative brain disease that is fatal. Children with this disease lose their ability to walk, talk, feed themselves, breathe on their own and eventually pass away. The disease progresses rapidly and children usually do not live past the age of 12. The Gray's daughter Charlotte is already showing signs and in the last few months, walking and talking has become very difficult for her. Please watch a short video about their story and struggle by clicking on the video located on the right.

Kristen and Gordon Gray have spent this past year tirelessly fundraising and have put together a medical research team that is working on a treatment which can potentially save their daughters. I am teaming up to raise funds to help their cause. PLEASE find it in your hearts to do one of the following:

1) You can join and donate now through our fundraising site. The money raised will be used for immediate treatment on both Charlotte and Gwenyth and every donation, big or small, will help; or

2) Join the team and become a fundraiser with your own page so you can help us tie into your personal network. It's really easy to set up and we can help make it happen for you. Here is the link to the main page where you can join our cause: https://www.crowdrise.com/graygirls.

With your help, we can make a huge difference to help save Charlotte and Gwenyth.

Thank you in advance for your help and support.
