HOPE FOR ALEC

Hope for Alec

Alec has Sanfilippo Syndrome Type C. Without treatment, he will not live to adulthood. You can help children like Alec by contributing to our campaign to raise funds for research into this childhood dementia.

Alec has Sanfilppo Syndrome Type C.  (There are four types of MPS III Sanfilippo Syndrome including Types A, B, C, D). Type C occurs in only 1 in every 1.5 million live births, while Types A and B occur in 1: 70,000. All funds raised via the Hope for Alec campaign will be put towards Type C research.

Alec loves camping. He likes to run but these days is unsteady on his feet. His mum, Michelle, says a smile from Alec makes the hardships of the day dissapear. If only Sanfilippo would dissapear!
