The Passion Behind the United MSD Foundation
Tuesday, April 10, 2018 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM CST
Please join us for our April luncheon, where we will hear from Amber Olsen, Owner of Red Water Staffing and Founder of the United MSD Foundation.
Amber Olsen is Entrepreneur and mom of three beautiful children. She owns two staffing companies and is founder of the United MSD Foundation started after her daughter, Willow, was diagnosed with a rare, fatal, genetic condition called Multiple Sulfatase Deficiency (MSD).Doctors have told Amber that the only thing standing in the way of a treatment for her daughter is funding. Determined to help not just Willow, but all children with MSD, she started The United MSD Foundation, a 501c3, to bring hope to the many families suffering from this terrible disease.
Amber also started Red Water Staffing in 2016 and commit all profits to funding research and the development of a treatment to save children affected by MSD.
Over a year after its inception, both Red Water Staffing and the work towards treating MSD have grown. Thanks to the funds collected, there is now a viable treatment being created in the lab for Willow and children like her.
Red Water Staffing is poised to achieve the same success as Olsen’s additional business location in Ocean Springs, MS, giving superior service matched with high quality talent for local business clients.
Learn more about how a little Willow has sparked a movement on the Gulf Coast to cure a disease and give hope to children world wide. Amber will share information on Willow, MSD, rare disease and how non-profits are pushing clinical trials forward.
Lunch will be served. Sponsored by Molly Koenig, Executive Director of Sales
