About Team Olivia Kay/United Leukodsytrophy Foundation
Team Olivia Kay is named after Olivia Kay Borodychuk who is a 5 year old little girl from Dewitt MI, who battles a very rare form of Leukodsytrophy called Alexander Disease. There are only 200 published cases of Alexander disease. Children are usually diagnosed around the age of two and the average life span of a child is 5-7 years. Our auction is designed to raise funds for a cure/research for Alexander Disease and all the profits are donated to the United Leukodsytrophy Foundation in honor of Olivia.
