Collin’s Story
Collin was diagnosed with Neuromyelitis Optica (NMO) by the Center for Pediatric Onset Demyelinating Diseases (CPODD) at the University of Alabama in Birmingham on March 5, 2008.  Collin ended his battle with NMO on March 29, 2012.  Forever our 9 year old Superhero!

Hi Froggies!

It has been a while since we have updated.  This one will be short, lol.

Tomorrow is Collin's 16th Birthday, can you believe he would be 16?!! In honor of his 16th birthday, we have a request for you all.  We need to raise $16,000 for research.  Don't worry, we're not asking it from one person. We only ask for each of you to donate $16 (more if you would like to) in memory of our favorite Superhero!  Also, please share the links so we can meet our goal.  Please click and read about why we are doing this.

You have 2 options:

$16 for 16 The Guthy Jackson Foundation

$16 for 16 on Facebook

Thank you to all of Collin's froggies! Please help us to make a difference and keep Collin's legacy alive!

For those who have asked, we are doing well, even though we miss Collin more than we ever imagined we would.  Feel free to friend us on facebook.
