I'd love your help raising funds and awareness for Joubert Syndrome. My brother in law Nick, shares it best:
We are committed to raising $10,000 for the Foundation over the next two years prior to the 2017 conference in Phoenix. Your donation will support all the families in the country, and ultimately around the globe, who suffer from Joubert and would benefit from being able to connect with other families that can relate, and who are also on this journey. Our hope is that other families can experience the sense of community that we will able to experience through the Joubert Foundation. -Nick Dietzen
Parker and Lane are growing stronger and progressing everyday! Please consider partnering with the Foundation, and with us as we navigate this unexpected journey, as a family unit.
"Olympians and Paralympians have so much knowledge to offer. They are not only amazing athletes who become masters of their tasks, but they often times overcome significant obstacles to reach their goals. Athletes who volunteer to become a Classroom Champions Athlete Mentor become heroes amongst our teachers and students simply because they take the time to pass down the knowledge they have learned after so many ups and downs during their careers."
