I'm extremely sad to announce that my grandfather, Dale Carlson, passed away on March 14th, 2022. He was an active supporter of my foundation and my life.  He expressed in his final wishes that donations made in his honor would be directed to my foundation.

Papa, I have so many fond memories of our adventures together.
I love you so much and you will be missed!!!

Welcome to the Ellie White Foundation For Rare Genetic Disorders

Meet Ellie White . She is far wiser than her years may lead you to believe. Ellie is a beacon of hope. She strives to help raise awareness for her terminal disease, Wolfram Syndrome. Wolfram Syndrome causes blindness, hearing loss, and eventually it affects the brain stem, causing respiratory failure at an early age. With no current cure, the life expectancy of a patient is typically less than 30 years.

Learn more about Ellie and how you can .
