Save the Boys!!!

Meet Aidan, Jacob, Eric and Joshua just 4 of the thousands of boys that have lost their lives because of ALD.

An estimated 235 babies will be born with Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) every year in this country alone. ALD is an X-linked genetic disease affecting 1/17,000 people. ALD destroys the myelin sheath in the brain and affects all neurological functioning: the ability to see, hear, move and eat are taken away leading to a vegetative state
