What our child Loves the most is…


How has Sanfilippo affected our child?

In many ways too fast. It has affected her hearing, eating, drinking, walking, sleeping, her voice… all of this happened in less than 9 months.

How has Sanfilippo affected our entire family?

Trips to doctor appointments and time away from everyone due to hospital visits. Making sure everyone is healthy before they come in the house. The hardest part is staying strong for her.

The hardest part of being a Sanfilippo parent is …

Watching my daughter go through something I cannot stop.

The biggest misconception people have about being a Sanfilippo parent is …

Why are we asking you to donate to Cure Sanfilippo Foundation?
