If you are driving around the greater St. Louis area, there’s the chance that you might see the face of Carson Burroughs.
OutFront Media featured Carson and the fight to cure Sanfilippo Syndrome on multiple billboards this holiday season.
According to Carson’s mom Sara, “He wasn’t sure what to think when he saw his face up on the billboard!”
The week of Dec. 16, Carson was appearing on the billboards at 270 & McDonnell, Lindbergh & Tesson, and Hwy 94 & Jungs Station. The will continue running the following week and possibly on more billboards.
Carson has Sanfilippo Syndrome Type A and he and his family live in O’Fallon, MO, a suburb of St. Louis. You can read his family’s words about how Sanfilippo has impacted their lives.
Thank you to OutFront Media for bringing awareness to Sanfilippo Syndrome and efforts to find a cure.
In late December, OutFront Media added three more billboards featuring Carson in the greater St. Louis area. This brings the total number of billboards featuring Carson to six during the holiday season.
Again, many, many thanks to OutFront Media for their generosity and willingness to spotlight a rare disease.
