THE STORY:

Find a Cure for VWM Leukodystrophy wrote -

Leukodystrophy known as Vanishing White Matter Disease (VWM) is a degeneration of the brain. Currently there is no cure for VWM. We are in race against time to Find a Cure for VWM ! Time is not on our side; most children born with this genetic disease die at an early age.

Prof. Orna Elroy-Stein is now at a very critical stage in her research. She and her small team developed the Marisol's mutated mice in 2010. That was huge. Researchers finally had a living organism that would let them follow the exact process of myelin production, maintenance, destruction and repair, which in turn provided invaluable information about the molecular mechanisms of the disease.

The Big News Now: Prof. Orna Elroy-Stein has made some recent discoveries that will allow her to move closer to the development of an actual therapeutic strategy. Potential drug candidates are now being evaluated.

Your gift will ensure that this works continues without interruption and it can save a child's life! Thank you again for your support.
