The Fly With Me Fund has been raising money through private donations for two years. Prior to the establishment of the non-profit, the Silver family raised money for The MIND (Medical Investigation of Neurodevelopmental Disorders) Institute at UC Davis in Sacramento.
To date, over $110,000 has been raised and over 50 Individuals have been assisted. The money contributed to The Fly With Me Fund has helped them access leading edge medical care and therapies at a Fragile X Clinic by providing them with airfare, lodging or other travel related expenses.
An EEG/ERP machine was purchased for the research lab at MIND Institute which helps with the handling and evaluation of blood samples taken for diagnosis while storing the samples in such a manner that they may be reevaluated at a later date, perhaps during or after drug therapies.
The impact of the Fly With Me Fund benefits both the individuals living with as well as the clinicians working on Fragile X Syndrome to achieve a better future.
