This year, Jimmy Pollard is focusing on sharing gratitude for the unique partnership of families
and scientists which have brought us this far together. As he says, “It’s the foundation for the
advances that cannot arrive fast enough in our quest for a cure.” Gratitude can inspire hope,
and we have taken him up on this endeavor! Don’t miss this event and all of our guests as we
kick off May Awareness month, and don’t forget to bring friends and family with you!
