Founder/President/ Mother, Lisa Moreno Dickinson coined the term “CAID” to represent all Childhood Auto inflammatory Diseases. CAID is an umbrella of over 30 common/rare diseases that are/can be life threatening. CAID does not discriminate. Unfortunately, we all know a child who is suffering from the symptoms of one or more of the more common CAID diseases such as Cancer, Lupus, Autism, Epilepsy, Blau Syndrome, etc.
Realizing child auto inflammatory diseases is a global epidemic, Ms. Dickinson established the StopCaidNow Foundation to help other families who have children with CAID come together under one umbrella. The Foundation was conceived as a result of Ms. Dickinson’s own personal journey. Ms. Dickinson is not only the Founder/President of StopCAIDNow but more importantly, a mother who fought a long road of endless doctors and research for proper diagnosis for her own sons, Brody and Aidan. Both boys are CAID sufferers. Ms. Dickinson was determined to not only save her own sons but all children around the world suffering from these life threatening diseases.
The Foundation focuses on several objectives: Education, Raise Awareness, Diagnosis, Research and bring forward a Cure to end inflammation. Ms. Dickinson has achieved these endeavors by partnering with the Cleveland Children’s Clinic, consistently rated among the “Best Children’s Hospitals” by U.S. News and World Report.
With the support of the stopCAIDnow Foundation, the Cleveland Children’s Clinic has established a clinic to properly diagnose children with auto inflammatory diseases, establish education programs for parents and patients, raise awareness and support clinical research. The Cleveland Clinic is also responsible for establishing a CME (Continuing Medical Education) accredited program for physicians. Through the CME Research Program we are providing educational tools for doctors to properly diagnose these diseases in their early stages.
The CAID Foundation is also honored to be partnered with Dr. Oliver Lawless, Adjunct Professor of Pediatrics and Immunology at Georgetown University. Dr. Lawless has patented a methylated DNA biologic Metvax vaccine in 2011 to abate inflammation associated with CAID. Currently Dr. Lawless is conducting human clinical trials and the last phase for patient use is FDA approval.
Ms. Dickinson along with her two sons, Dr. Lawless, The Cleveland Clinic, as well as the thousands and thousands of families whom have children suffering with CAID cannot fund this cure alone. They need your support.
Your donations will help fund research, support programs for families and children, education for physicians but most importantly, funding for the cure. Time is of the essence. Please DONATE!
Stop The Inflammation. Stop The Pain. Stop The Suffering.
