Why the Sanfilippo cause?

“Sanfilippo is such a devastating condition but fortunately the science is trailblazing. The foundations around the world, including Sanflippo Children’s Foundation have done amazing work to advance the research and take potential treatments to clinical trial. If I can help in any small way to keep that momentum going and get effective treatments to the children that need them, then that is what I call rewarding work!”
