Turn Hope into Action for an Urgent Cause

Dr. Ruth Napier’s OHSU research lab is working to find life-saving answers for children like Raiden (pictured above) facing rare diseases. Raiden was born with UBA5, a debilitating and ultra-rare genetic disorder. It is neurodegenerative, causing epilepsy, movement disorder and cognitive impairment – and life expectancy is unknown. This Give Day, you can double your support for Dr. Napier’s life-saving work with a $75,000 match from the Raiden Science Foundation. Turn hope into action for millions suffering from more than 7,000 rare diseases.

Make your life-saving gift here!
