A BRIEF LOOK AT AN NPC DIAGNOSIS
Children and adults are in the fight of their lives against fatal Niemann-Pick Type C. Without treatment and a cure they will lose their ability to move, speak, eat, breathe and live.
This disease strikes all ages, most frequently children. It's the short term memory loss of Alzheimer's, the tremors of Parkinson's and the systemic decline of ALS. Two experimental medications that patients rely on to slow the disease are at risk of being taken away.
They need your help to stay alive.
