Great help for those affected by NMO!

This app is a great help and resource for patients and care givers of those affected by the rare disease, Neuromyelitis Optica (NMO). Thank you to the wonderful folks at The Guthy Jackson Charitable Foundation for putting this together. You can find videos about this disease, clinical trials, research & blood bank and it's an invaluable resource to help connect patients to doctors that treat NMO and support groups. I'm so grateful that we have this app!

Love It!

This app is amazing! You can enlarge the font. There is a section for notes--where I keep track of any new symptoms and it has any and all of the information you might want to share with a loved one condensed and at your fingertips. It's also an easy way to stay current with new developments, clinical trials, etc...

Thank you for this gem💫

Awesome resource!

Great resource to have ready anytime - anywhere! Wish I had this last time I was in the ER - would've saved a lot it time! Not looking forward to the next time - but at least I will be better equipped.
