Donor Fair Raises Thousands for LGDA

Since their daughter was diagnosed with GLA in the summer of 2018, the Thomas family has made the 3 hour drive from their California home to Stanford for her treatment more than 2 dozen times.

When Cece, now 2 years old, was diagnosed, Mr. Thomas’ coworkers rallied around the family to help. When he was invited to participate in his employer’s Donor Fair in October 2019, he had no idea what to expect but was grateful for the opportunity to share their story and raise some money to help the LGDA in its efforts to find better treatments for children like Cece.

Once again, his coworkers rallied around to learn and to help.

With matching funds from Mr. Thomas’ employer, the Donor Fair raised over $8000.00 for the LGDA!
