Becky’s dream is that we can find a cure for Lafora disease. Can you help?
“Alone, we can do so little . . . together, we can do so much.”
— Helen Keller
Lafora Disease, also known as Lafora Progressive Myoclonus Epilepsy, is a rare form of epilepsy that strikes children usually between the ages of 9 and 14. Symptoms become increasingly worse within a short period of time. Symptoms include: seizures, myoclonic jerks, cognitive decline, difficulty walking, severe hallucinations, and dementia. It eventually leads to death within 10 years of the onset of the disease.
It currently has no cure.
We all hope a cure is found soon, so no other families will experience the pain of this disease.
We started a Lafora group on Facebook. Click the following button:
