This foundation is committed to kids with Batten disease, a metabolic disease that can best be described as a deadly form of child dementia. This rare disease ensures that these children first will become blind around the age of 5 or 6. Following on blindness, more and more physical functions will stop working. This demolishing disease ensures that these children do on average not become older than between 15 to 25 years. The Beat Batten foundation informs parents, finances research and is partner of WKZ (Wilhelmina Children’s Hospital in Utrecht) building a new Center for Children’s Dementia. Hopeful steps towards treatment are being taken thanks to the commitment of this foundation, your help is very much needed as well.
You can create your own personalized poster to draw attention to this fundraising page. After printing the poster you can hang it in a shop, a café window or a community bulletin board. Ask your family, friends, co-workers and neighbors to help and also put up a poster in their home, school or work place. Most people are willing to help but be sure to ask permission first.
