4 year old Jasper was diagnosed with Batten disease in February of this year, and as his parents, Pip and Bou, state on their website, jasperagainstbatten.org, "Within a year, we went from a healthy son with some speech delay, to a son with epilepsy, to a son with epilepsy and autism to this devastating disease and prognosis." Jasper, and many other children like him, are in desperate need of treatment, and Jasper's family has chosen to be emboldened by the challenges that face them, and keep working and hoping for treatment, as "Hope = Life."
Psychobaby's brick and mortar store is joining with their youngest friends in the city-wide initiative to raise funds for Jasper Against Batten. Stop on by and help us help Jasper and others like him as they continue their battle against Batten. If you would like to donate online, or send the Duinstra family a message, please visit jasperagainstbatten.org
