For him it leads to delayed and motor skills, lack of speech and a seizure disorder. However, he is very social and everyone in the Loveland School District loves Olam.
The National Organization for Disorders of the Corpus Callosum (NODCC) is the national leader in gathering and disseminating information regarding disorders of the corpus callosum. The corpus callosum is a part of the brain that connects the left and right hemispheres. About 1 in 2000 people are born with a malformed or missing corpus callosum. This leads to many delays in physical and mental milestones.
Olam would like to celebrate Brain Awareness Week with a fundraiser at Scene 75 on Wednesday March 15 from 5 – 8 pm. Scene 75 is offering $20 in arcade credit, (2) attraction tickets and a ticket for laser tag on a future visit, all for only $25. Of that price $6 will get donated to the NODCC.
