The Yash Gandhi Foundation's goal is to raise funds for research to find a cure for I-cell disease. 
MY STORY
Jamie was diagnosed with I-Cell right after his first birthday in 1975. He passed when he was 2 1/2 years old.  At that time the doctors here knew absolutly nothing about the disease - only the name.  I was told to take him home and love him; he would not live past five years old.  The news was devastating, his symptoms were not treated. Being my first child I was ignorant to such things as meeting milestones or what "normal" was. All I knew was that he was mine and he was perfect.  Although I was fortunate to have a loving, supportive family, I longed to be in contact with another mother who "got it".  
 
Thirty five years later I finally did connect with other families. I was also honored to meet Dr. Jules LeRoy who discovered I-Cell.  He informed me that Jamie was probably one of the first five children to be diagnosed.
 
I am so excited to be participating in the 3rd Annual YGF 5K Charity Run/Walk for a Cure in memory of my Jamie and in hope that one day a cure to I-Cell/ML will be discovered. 
100% of the money raised from this event will be used to enhance research initiatives that will assist in improving the overall quality of life among children living with this horrible disease.
 
I am trying to raise at least $400, $10 for each year since I last held him.  If you remember Jamie, or know how much I miss him daily, please consider helping me by sponsoring “Team Jamie & Me” in this walk and honoring his memory.
