Jillian’s Cure

Jillian’s Cure was founded in January 2013 by Carolyn Nava. Carolyn started this fund after her daughter Jillian was diagnosed with inherited Optic Atrophy/Optic Neuropathy. Carolyn fundraises in her community and online and lives by the motto, “When we’re presented with a challenge, we have two choices:  be the victim or be a warrior”. As you can tell Carolyn is a fierce warrior. She has raised over four thousand dollars for the Therapeutic Research in Accelerated Discovery Program (TRIAD) to support research for the rare form inherited Optic Atrophy/Optic Neuropathy.
