Derek's Dreams

I just received an announcement in my mailbox about another Derek's Dreams fundraiser for ataxia telangiectasia. This terrible disease is a degenerative neurological disease suffered by a sweet young man in the Princeton community. If you would like to support a worthy cause, please consider attending the dinner at Nanina's in the Park in Belleville, NJ or donating if you can't make it. Derek's disease is progressing, and we need to fund research to discover the cure for this terrible condition. Some recent research on Huntington's disease has broken new ground in the search for a treatment for Huntington's (another incurable neurological disease), proving yet again that the most useful action in curing disease is to fund the research, and that we must not give up hope.

More information can be found at Derek's Dreams.

    1. Is it Derek's disease as described above, or another disease called Dereks disease? If it's ataxia teleangiectasia, you can click on the link to learn more about it, but I get the impression that you mean a different disease altogether. I always find the WebMD or Mayo Clinic websites to be very helpful. Good luck with it.
