I can't believe that my baby is turning 2 on August 24! We are so happy and thankful that we have made it this far! Of course we are planning to celebrate in a big way. Remember, we were given a small chance that Austin would live 2 years. We have no idea what the future holds but we are celebrating this moment right now! Last year in addition to having a great time at Austin's birthday party we raised over $2100 for Nevus Outreach to help find a cure for NCM. Nevus Outreach is currently funding a few very interesting research projects which we hope will help lead to a cure. This is the only organization we know of that is trying to find a cure for NCM. We are so grateful to our family and friends who have given to Nevus Outreach and very touched by the fact that others love Austin and want to help us find a cure. If you would like to commemorate Austin's birthday by donating online, please use the tool at the left under the heading "Donate to Nevus Outreach," or go directly to their website at www.nevus.org and click on "donate" at the top right corner. Additionally, donations can be made through our Cause, "Austin's Angels," on Facebook. If you would prefer to send a check the address is: Nevus Outreach, Inc., 600 SE Delaware Avenue, Suite 200, Bartlesville, OK 74003. Either way please clearly indicate that your donation is in honor of Austin King or Austin's Angels and the money will be used only for NCM research projects. Nevus Outreach is a 501 (c) (3) and your contributions are fully tax deductible. We are grateful beyond measure for your generosity!
