THE STORY:

It’s that time of year again, when families come together and celebrate the holidays! But don't forget: we can ALL do some good for those who need it!

The Transverse Myelitis Association (TMA) has the chance to win $100,000 if we receive the most donations out of 467 charities from November 18th to January 9th.

​Do something wonderful this holiday season! Help us advance our education and research programs so that, in the nearest possible future, no one will have to suffer from rare neuro-immunologic disorders.

The TMA is a not-for-profit dedicated to the support of children, adolescents, and adults with a spectrum of rare neuro-immune disorders including: Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM), Neuromyelitis Optica (NMO), Optic Neuritis (ON) and Transverse Myelitis (TM). Very little is understood about the disease mechanisms for these disorders. It is believed that a person who develops one of these rare neuro-immune disorders likely has a genetic predisposition to auto-immunity, and that there are environmental factors that interact with these genetics to trigger the disease. No one yet understands why some people have a good recovery from an attack, while others have no recovery at all.

The goals of the TMA are to support and advocate for individuals and their families through education programs and outreach opportunities including annual family camps for children; to build a comprehensive network of medical professionals dedicated to the care of patients through Fellowships, and to support research to further the understanding of the causes of TM, ADEM, ON and NMO, and develop new acute and regenerative therapies.
