Imagine if your child was diagnosed with a life-threatening, rare disease–one for which there was no treatment. You were told only to watch your child slip helplessly into paralysis, respiratory compromise and, ultimately, death. But what if someone said, “Perhaps there is a cure. But you have to create and fund it yourself.” Imagine if you had to raise more than $1 million to save your child.
Ipswich’s 11 year-old Talia Duff and her family are facing this very challenge. Talia is battling a life-threatening illness called Charcot Marie Tooth Disease Type 4J (CMT4J). It looks a lot like ALS. After receiving their daughter’s diagnosis, the Duffs created a non-profit foundation, CureCMT4J, and gathered world experts to address a cure. But in order to get to a clinical trial to help their daughter and others, they need to raise at least $1 million. The disease is too rare to attract pharmaceutical or biotech companies to take up the challenge. It is up to Talia’s parents. Please join us in helping the Duffs reach a cure for Talia.
How Can You Help? Stop by our 23 Market Street Ipswich store location on Monday, April 24th-Friday, April 28th and make a donation to CureCMT4J/Talia Duff Foundation. On top of your donation, we’ll make a contribution to help them lead the way in finding treatments—and cures—for a number of rare, genetic diseases.
