CommerceWest Sponsors Natalie's Wish - Cystinosis Research Foundation

CommerceWest Bank sponsored Natalie's Wish - Cystinosis Research Foundation for their most important, most inspiring, fundraising event of the year. At the age of 12, Natalie's wish was -  "to have my disease go away forever." As a result, her parents founded the Cystinosis Research Foundation. There is currently no cure for cystinosis, a rare metabolic disease, but there is hope.

Ivo A. Tjan, CEO of CommerceWest Bank commented, "When you hear the story of Natalie and her family, it is heartbreaking. A child should never have to endure so much that their one wish on their Birthday is to have their disease go away forever." He continued, "CommerceWest Bank wanted to support Natalie and her wish to find a cure for not only herself but for the other children that suffer from this rare disease. It is our hope that by supporting such a great cause, they can find a cure so these children can have better wishes and celebrate many more Birthdays."
