No to Pneumonia

Could you imagine a normal morning of getting ready, making breakfast,  getting the kids ready, rushing to your car and then dropping off your toddler at daycare, before arriving at work in a nick of time?  It's just another hectic morning. However, shortly after arriving to work, you receive a call that your toddler has died from undiagnosed pneumonia. Unfortunately, this story is true for too many families, whether it is here in the U.S. or abroad. 

1 Million children under 5 die from pneumonia every year, around the world. These lives lost represent more deaths than measles malaria and AIDS combined.  A large contribution to these deaths is not treatment, but diagnosis. For most cases of pneumonia, it can be treated for less  $1 U.S. dollar.  The current window to receive results, from the chest x-ray, is insufficient and can take several hours to several days, depending on the healthcare systems.

Nopneu is working to change these facts. My name is Temiloluwa Adeniy.  I am the founder and CEO of Nopneu. Nopneu is working towards this change through a rapid, diagnostic test that has easy to read and color coded results, provided for a fraction of the cost and time, we are working to change this. 

I don't want another family to needlessly suffer from the premature loss of a child,  and I'm sure you don't either, but I need your help. In order for this to happen, I need to raise $275k. This money will help to complete the next stage of research and development, rent a research space, hire full-time staff and cover travel expenses for the Nopneu team to attend entrepreneurship events to raise additional funds and establish important relationships with collaborators. Your donation could make this happen & help to save a child's life.  A donation of any size could help make this happen. Please make a donation and help the world say #NotoPneumonia.
