So I came home from the FARA Therapeutics Symposium last Sunday jet lagged, exhausted and more motivated than ever. Spending a few days with the world's leading scientists who are using the money that we raise to find a cure for the disease that alters our lives could not have been more rewarding.
Dr. Mark Pook and Dr. Jim Rusche; both are past recipients of funds raised by Ride Ataxia
When I got home, I was going through my mail and I came across an envelope with second grade handwriting on it. I opened it up and this is what I found:
Enclosed was Jacob's cash donation. Wow, that's pretty powerful. I spoke at Pleasant Ridge School (my alma mater) a couple times and this little guy remembered very clearly, he even spelled Ataxia correctly! Thanks Jacob, you provided another boost at the end of an exciting week!
