2013 Fundraising Event for Lafora Disease

Back to Events page

Our Group donated some of our painting for this cause very close and dear to our hearts.

Lafora disease, also called Lafora progressive myoclonic epilepsy or MELF, is a fatal autosomal recessive genetic disorder characterized by the presence of inclusion bodies, known as Lafora bodies, within the cytoplasm of the cells of the heart, liver, muscle, and skin. There is no treatment, and therapy is mainly supportive and symptomatic.
