It's February. That means it is time to focus on Rare Diseases. You can read more about what I wrote about the past 2 years by clicking on the links to the right.
This year, I am focusing on
different people with Niemann-Pick Disease, one of the 7000+ rare
diseases, and the one that took the life of my only son.
Today's focus is on Julia from Florida. Julia was diagnosed in October 2011 at the age of 11. She has been part of both NIH clinical trials, including having brain surgery twice. Her story can be followed here: http://www.juliasjourney.net/index.html
