About Our Promise To Nicholas Foundation

Our Promise to Nicholas Foundation is named after Nicholas Dainiak of Bedford, New Hampshire. OPTN was established in 2009 as a non profit charitable foundation. At age five, Nicholas was diagnosed with a rare genetic brain disorder called Batten Disease. This disease affects an estimated two to four children out of 100,000 born in the United States. Batten Disease causes seizures, blindness, dementia, immobility and eventually requires twenty-four-hour care. The cruel part of this disease is that these children are vibrant and healthy until it takes its course around the age of four. Eventually Batten takes over the brain, causing the child to die between the ages of eight and twelve.

Sadly, Nicholas lost his battle to Batten on May 9, 2014, on his 11th birthday. In keeping our promise to Nicholas, we continue to work toward a cure for this childhood disease.
