On the 13th of March 2015 Olivia Lannoo's life changed for good. The 19 year old was diagnosed with an extremly rare form of the already rare auto immune disease called "NMO" (neuromyelitis optica). Instead of going to parties or playing basketball with her friends, she was battling paralysis, blurry sight, extreme headaches, ...

Despite having problems to walk she never stopped believing in her chances to play basketball again. Her big dream was to be back on a basketball field. Unfortunately Olivia lost her battle with NMO on the 19th of May 2017.

We are realizing Olivia's dream by organizing a 3on3 basketball tournament and a charity game on her court on the 23th of December 2017 in Kortrijk, Belgium. All money raised through this event will be donated to the Guthy Jackson Foundation, a charity focused on research about NMO.

The tournament is for U12 and U14 in the morning. And U16 and U18 in the afternoon, boys and girls are mixed.
