OPACC was there for our family when our son was diagnosed. The tremendous amount of support and love we were shown will never be forgotten.

OPACC is an organization made up of parents, friends, and family who have walked our paths before us. This is exactly what sets them apart from other organizations. They know and understand our journey when most of our loved ones cannot. They anticipate our needs before we anticipate our own.
