University of Notre Dame: Fighting For The Lives Of Children

See More Videos

Niemann-Pick Type C is a genetic, cholesterol storage disorder that primarily strikes children with death occurring before or during adolescence. There is also an adult onset form of the disease.

 The Ara Parseghian Medical Research Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to funding medical research projects to find a treatment for Niemann-Pick Type C (NP-C) disease. The Parseghian Foundation is named in honor of Ara Parseghian, the much beloved and well-known Notre Dame Football Coach, whose three youngest grandchildren were diagnosed with NP-C in 1994. 

Medical research is the key to saving the lives of all those around the world afflicted with Niemann-Pick disease. You can help by donating to the Ara Parseghian Medical Research Foundation. Thank you.

Helping KidsSadly, the Parseghian family has lost Michael, Marcia and Christa to Niemann-Pick Type C disease.  Their hearts will be forever broken.

Their resolve, however, to continue the fight against NP-C disease is not broken.  The Parseghians and thousands of volunteers and friends across the US and around the world are raising funds and pushing medical research so that a treatment can be found.

Please help us in this valiant effort so that everyone afflicted with Niemann-Pick around the world can live to realize their hopes and dreams. Thank you.
