BENEFITING: REGENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA
I would like you to meet my father, George Sodowick. He is a warm, loving, kind, thoughtful man and I am so fortunate to have him as my dad. He has always been there for me and now it is my turn to give back...
My father and I are both Fragile X carriers. When you are a carrier of Fragile X you are at risk of other rare illnesses and conditions, the worst of them being FXTAS. My father is sadly affected with this horrible disease. FXTAS affects movement and cognitive functioning, worsening with age.
I urge you to donate to my campaign in an effort to support the MIND Institute to conduct critical research for individuals with FXTAS like my father. They are hopeful that a new drug will help slow down or hopefully stop his deterioration and improve his current quality of life and the lives of others that are affected. He can hardly walk, cannot remember events in his life or recent conversations, and collapses without notice. It is a horrible way to end your life and we are hoping that your charity will make a difference for us and other people affected with this horrible disease.
We cannot thank you enough for donating even the smallest amount as it all makes a big difference. For him and the other people that are affected with this disease, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for anything you can do to help find a cure.
