Welcome to Dan & Jeanie's Personal Page for Team Laura
This October the Kolbs are supporting Team Laura and rideATAXIA. For 19 years Friedreich's Ataxia disease has been a constant battle for our 30 year old friend Laura Beth Jacquin. Thanks to past donations, great strides have been made to better understand the cause, develop treatments and hopefully soon find a cure. Research has been able to determine that the decrease in the amount of a protein called Frataxin, found in the mitochondria can progressively impede normal functions of the human body. This small deficiency results in Friedreich’s Ataxia. Thanks to all the fundraising efforts, the amount of research and clinical trials for FA is growing substantially. Last year Team Laura raised over $38,000. Wow! Thank you to everyone who supported our 2016 fundraiser and in years past. We're getting closer to making a cure reality!
Laura's positive attitude is impressive. She is the strongest most determined person we know. She continues to believe that together we can make a difference for the 15,000 youths that have been diagnosed with this rare disease. Help us make Laura's dream of a cure come true.
Join us in supporting Laura. Please donate. Together we will cure FA!
Thank you for your generous support, Dan & Jeanie
