5th Annual 18 For Emerson Charity Golf Tournament, Dinner and Auction

The 5th Annual 18 For Emerson Golf Tournament, Dinner and Auction is now set for August 10, 2015!

Since Emerson’s diagnosis, Emerson’s Hope Foundation has raised over $200,000 to help the advancement of medical research in our effort to cure Spinal Muscular Atrophy. In the last year, there have been many advancements in the treatment of SMA, and we are very excited to see what the next year will bring!  This however is not the time to stop the funding.  Current methodologies in treatment are showing the ability to halt the progression of the disease, and in some cases show short term gains in strength.  These are all wonderful things!  We however want to continue working on a way to cure this disease, which means regenerative therapy to reverse the damage that has been caused by the disease.

In order to do this, we will be working with Sophia’s Cure Foundation again this year to help with their funding goals.  Vincent and Catherine Gaynor are pioneers in parental research of SMA, and have, in our opinion, more knowledge than most in the field!  In the coming months, we will be outlaying our goals for this years campaign, along with providing direction on our funding goals for 2015.  It’s been great to see our friends and family show up year after year, to help support our family, along with the thousands of other families out there relying on this medical research.

4th Annual 18 for Emerson Charity Golf Tournament

20140128_235349000_iOS

Here we are again, another year has gone by and we are looking for your support as we begin planning the 4th Annual 18 For Emerson Charity Golf Tournament.  To date, we have raised over $150,000 to support medical research being conducted by Dr. Brian Kaspar’s team at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.  Our goal this year is to raise another $50,000 to continue to support the efforts being conducted by Dr. Kaspar’s team to cure SMA!

Once again this year, all money raised will be going to Sophia’s Cure and then directed to Dr. Kaspar and his team. Last year’s event helped to fully fund the gene therapy program for Phase 1 and we are currently waiting for Phase 1 of the long-awaited human clinical trial.  The theory is if we get in early enough a full rescue is possible for the newly diagnosed and the more advanced patients would see a halt in the progression of the disease. The next step in the puzzle is to figure out if there is a way to ”fix” what is damaged on the more advanced kids.  Dr. Kaspar and his team are now focused on finding out if it is possible to re-innervate axons of motor neurons that are potentially still alive.
