  • Meet Danielle.

    Danielle is a girl's girl. Her hair is done, her nails are polished and she loves Katy Perry! However, one difference is that she has Canavan disease. Sadly, Danielle will never know independence, but it will not keep her from enjoying the love of her family and the sounds of music. Consider a gift today and keep the beat going for kids like Danielle who are affected by Canavan and related diseases.
  • Meet Mallory

    Mallory is seven years old and has Juvenile Tay-Sachs disease. Four years ago, she could walk with assistance, say a few words and her eyes sparkled. Now, everyone that meets her is stunned by her quiet beauty, peaceful spirit and gorgeous hair. Please give today in Mallory's honor so the sparkle shines for families and their children in the years to come.
