Team Member: Nicki Ketcham Oss
Promote Ovine(sheep)GM1 for the treatment of Huntington's Disease(HD) and/or other neurological diseases through education, advocacy and fundraising. GM1 is a naturally occurring product which has shown great promise in animal models to reverse the devastating symptoms of HD. It has also been used in clinical trials for the treatment of Parkinson's disease. Our non-profit organization is dedicated to shepherding ovine GM1 through the elaborate and expensive clinical trial process and give hope to people affected with these diseases.
