Named after a lovely little girl - Miranda's Mission is an organization devoted to raising money for WAGR syndrome - a genetic condition that can lead to blindness, kidney cancer, reproductive abnormalities and cognitive deficits. More information on WAGR Syndrome can be found at www.WAGR.org
Miranda was diagnosed with WAGR Syndrome when she was 4 months old. Despite being legally blind and facing many medical challenges, Miranda remains a vibrant, enthusiastic little girl. Unfortunately, research devoted to treating, and bringing awareness to, WAGR syndrome is radically underfunded - as such, even a small donation could make a true contribution to helping Miranda and other kids diagnosed with WAGR.
