What a busy and fantastic day!
It was so informative and we feel so encouraged to know that such innovative, rigorous, and continuous research is being done to find a cure for the disease.
No matter what cure may be found, early detection is still imperative. We must continue to push each state to add Krabbe to the Newborn Screening Test!
Marshall’s daddy, David, wanted to hold Tori. Marshall is in the background.
The children here do not all have Krabbe – many different leukodystrophies are present, which explains the age of some of these children.
Tori wasn’t so sure about having another picture taken – even with Jim! 😉
Then, the highlight of the evening: a nine year old boy from Buffalo brought blankets that he makes for sick kids to all of our children. Kwentin collects recyclables and uses the money to go to the fabric store. He said his goal for this year is to make a blanket every day. What an incredible young man! You can see his Facebook page here.

It was an amazing day. 😄
