Michael's Story

Michael was diagnosed with MPS II at the age of 18 months. Although there is no cure for MPS II, Michael and I traveled up to Duke University for him to have a unrelated cord blood bone marrow transplant on December 26, 2008.

This has been a trying and difficult path being a single parent, but I would do it all over again if I had to in order to do whatever I could for my child. We would greatly appreciate your contributions with hope it can help find a cure for Michael and others affected by MPS.
