Hello my name is Avery and I’m 24 years old. I was diagnosed with NMOSD in 2017, then quickly learned I actually have MOGad. I am a former college track runner and due to the severity of my attack at the time, I gave up the sport I loved. Seeing the effects of NMOSD/MOG on my peers I quickly became a rare disease advocate. It takes everyone to fight this disease. That became my new purpose Although I’m not a runner anymore, I am running a new race. The race to find a cure.
