Thank you for visiting our fundraising page! We are trying to raise money to further the research needed to find a cure and raise awareness for Alida's condition known as NEHI. Alida was diagnosed with the condition at around 8 months old, after several stays in the hospital for what appeared to be a viral pneumonia that never really seemed to get better.
As any parent will tell you seeing your child sick and not knowing exactly why or how to fix it is the most helpless feeling imaginable! We wouldn’t wish it on anyone, but there is a certain relief that comes with finally getting a diagnoses. But what isn’t a relief is then finding out that your child’s condition is so rare, there are only a hand full of doctors that know anything about it and less than 1000 people in the entire U.S. and possibly the world that have the condition.
This fundraiser is just one small part of the effort to correct that problem. The ChILD Foundation is trying to raise 30,000 dollars specifically for NEHI research and any support you can give will help and be greatly appreciated. Alida is doing well but we need to find a cure for her and all the other kids diagnosed with NEHI.

Sincerely and with much Love,
