As many of you know, raising money to find a cure for Neuromyelitis optica is near and dear to my heart because I suffer from NMO. (I might even be in that video up there)
What is it, you ask?
NMO stands for neuromyelitis optica, originally known as Devic’s Disease. NMO is an incurable autoimmune disorder. The body’s immune system attacks its own healthy cells, most commonly in the optic nerves and spinal cord. It can cause temporary or permanent blindness and/or paralysis, and may have periods of remission and relapse.
What can you win this year?
- Madelinetosh Tosh Sock in Green w/Envy and any one of Maureen Foulds patterns
- Beaverslide Dry Goods 2 ply sport/sock yarn in Hidden Lake and any one of Maureen Foulds patterns
- A pair of hand knit socks from Maureen! Even better, they will be the prototype for her next design! (measurements will be needed by 11/8 and socks will be sent in late January/ early February)
