Your sponsorship dollars will benefit Mila’s Miracle Foundation to Stop Batten.
Mila is a 6-year-old girl in Boulder suffering from Batten disease—a rare, neurodegenerative condition causing seizures, vision loss, cognitive impairment, and early death. There is no cure— yet. Parents are forced to make excruciatingly painful decisions as the disease takes its course. Eventually, these families are left to face life without their child. But Mila’s parents have decided to make a difference and raise $4M to fund research and start a gene therapy trial to halt degeneration in children facing Mila’s type of Batten. The foundation aims to help find a cure to Batten disease and to fund scientific advances, which can be used to combat additional genetic diseases affecting hundreds of millions of people all over the world. Mila’s story has already caught the attention of national and international media. And a team of cutting-edge scientists is in place and ready to start working quickly toward the trial.
