THE STORY:

Dear Friends and Family,

In June 2007 my niece, Ashley, then 19 years old and a student at St. Mary's at Notre Dame was stricken with a brain injury. Her symptoms did not point to a conclusive diagnosis. Within a week the concensus was acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) a neurological disorder characterized by inflammation of the brain and spinal cord caused by damage to the myelin sheath. Myelin insulates the neurofibers that carry signals throughout the brain. Myelin can regrow, but the amount and time varies in each case.   Ashley's strong faith, positive attitude,  and determination have brought her a long way in her recovery and she continues to work hard every day.

The TMA organization has been at Ashley and her family's side from the first phone call my brother made to the founder, Sandy Siegel.  The TMA is not just the name of a charity.  It is made up of people who reach out and support the people touched by these diseases.

Please help me in supporting this organization that has stood by my family's side for 7 years.   

Thank you for your support!

Lynn Harrington-Giesler
