Fighting rare diseases
In the UK, there are thousands of children living with a rare and life-limiting disease for which there is no cure.
Children like Danny who has the rare disease, Hunter syndrome. Danny’s family are painfully aware that time with their youngest son will be cruelly cut short by this disease.
“We will lose our beautiful boy to Hunter syndrome,” says mum Sally. “But any new hope is worth fighting for. So that families in the future don’t have to feel that the bottom is dropping out of their world.”
