Ryan's Fund


Ryan's Fund is designed to provide families with Neocate Infant Formula, for their children with multiple protein intolerance. The mission of the fund is to help alleviate the stress, both financial and emotional, that this diagnosis places on families.


The program is administered through National Jewish Medical and Research Center. The program facilitator, Dr. Dan Atkins, is a pediatric allergy specialist at National Jewish. At his discretion, a one-month supply of formula is given to National Jewish pediatric patients who need Neocate because their food intolerance and/or allergy makes it difficult to achieve adequate nutrition.

If you wish to donate to Ryan's Fund, call Allison Jernigan at 303-398-1077.

You can also send a check, payable to National Jewish Health to:
