How far would you go if you knew you could cure your child? has been captivated by little Michael and his struggle with SPG50. We are calling #Hellenes around the world to unite to help Michael and his family, fight for a cure to the rare neuro-degenerative disease #SPG50.

The Priovolakis family needs your help. If you are able, we ask you to contribute what you can at

#getyoutothegreek FILOTIMO.

I'm Terry, Michael's dad, and my son is withering away right in front of me.  It pains me to know that instead of watching my son grow, learn and blossom into an independent young man, I will have to watch him regress, become wheelchair bound and slowly lose all functionality of his body and mind. We need your help to change his future.

Michael was born one week before Christmas (he was actually due to be born on December 25) an early Christmas gift that we had all anxiously been waiting for. He was perfect, 10 fingers, 10 toes and big blue eyes, what else could we ask for. We brought him home and started our new life as a family of 5.

As the months went by we started to notice that Michael was missing some major milestones, in my gut I knew that there was something wrong but I just did not want to believe it.  After numerous doctors appointments, MRI's, blood work and endless conversation with medical professionals Michael was diagnosed with SPG50 an ultra rare neurodegenerative disease.

As our neurologist explained what Michaels future looked like, words like severe developmental delay, non verbal, spastic paraplegia and confined to a wheelchair by the age of 10 painted a picture of a future that no parent wants for their child.

It's unbelievable that our happy, lively little boy will gradually regress and be lost to this terrible disease.  We won' t sit back and watch Michael be taken away from us. He deserves better and we need to help him reach his full potential.

SPG50 is a progressive brain disorder that begins in early childhood, it is  caused by just one missing protein… but it’s an important one.  Seeing that he doesn’t have this protein, the degeneration rapidly progresses and Michael will lose the ability to use his feet, hands and slowly his brain will have limited function. They call it a progressive cerebral palsy.

Our goal is to raise $3 million dollars in 1 year, to give Michael his rightful chance at a full life.  We can’t just sit back and accept that he’s going to fade away, not when there is something tangible that could save him. 

We are asking you to Help us give Michael a brighter tomorrow!

We need your help to contribute what you can , and to help share #CureSPG50, #CureMichael so it can go viral, and our goal can be reached.

Michael can have a Brighter Tomorrow thanks to you.

1. Donate what you can, every amount is appreciated!
2. Share our video with your friends and family

Every penny will go to research being done right now on SPG50 through several amazing hospitals and universities around the world. We are currently racing against time to fund this research, trial and ultimately cure for all SPG50 children. ***Any donations received above the goal will go directly to additional research into SPG50***

Getting a clinical trial up and running can cost millions of dollars. In Rare Diseases, large pharmaceutical companies have little interest because they don’t see ways to make a profit. If we can’t fund it, the clinical trial will not happen!

All efforts made now to help Michael develop normally will be lost if we do not find a cure, spasticity and neurological delays will begin to affect him as early as 3, that's less than 16 months away.

1. Create proof of concept
2. Manufacture clinical grade drug production
3. Final safety studies
4. FDA approval to proceed with clinical trial
5. Start clinical trial

From the bottom of our hearts we thank you, we will be forever grateful for your help and support to help Michael reach his full potential.

Please, See our story...
