My son dated a lovely young lady a few years ago who suffered from this disease. She is a talented musician, and her condition made pursuing her dreams very difficult. I don't know what has become of her, as they did not date very long, but she was a sweet girl. This is where I first learned about the disease. I hope by bringing this to the attention of a broader audience, that funds can be raised to do research for an effective treatment and hopefully one day a cure for this disease.

Very, very saddening.

When I read of Haley's situation last year I was hopeful some remedy would be found despite the "incurable" designation at the time. It's painful to know she suffered so long after fighting so hard. I wish it could have ended differently.

My condolences to her family and many friends.
