Hello all! Welcome to my fundraising page! I'm raising money for the National PKU Alliance (NPKUA) as my mitzvah project. Mitzvah means "good deed" in hebrew. My cousin Owen has PKU, a rare disease in which his body cannot break down PHE, a part of protein. His diet is very restricting and I have seen how hard it is to live with PKU, and how careful they have to be. If not treated properly, PKU can cause brain damage and developmental delays. The money I raise will support funding for the NPKUA for research, advocacy and support & education for families with PKU. Please make a donation to help me reach my goal and help Owen and others with PKU!
Proceeds will go to the National PKU Alliance (NPKUA), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. NPKUA's Mission is to improve the lives of individuals and families associated with PKU through research, support, education and advocacy, while ultimately seeking a cure. www.npkua.org
