Meet my two granddaughters, Jamie Rae and Layla Grace Alacan who are battling 4H Leukodystrophy. Their mother Courtney describes them as her warrior babies, and I could not agree more. I hope by doing this event many more people will join the fight against this terrible neurological disorder. –Eddie Alacan
4H leukodystrophy is a genetic disorder that causes a lack of myelin, the fatty white substance that covers and protects nerve cells in the central nervous system. The missing myelin causes problems with balance and walking, tremors, speech difficulties, uncontrolled muscle contractions, stiff muscles, and restricted movements. Other symptoms include abnormal tooth development, atypical puberty, short stature, and near sightedness.
