The ML4 Foundation funds research that leads to treatments and a cure for this devastating disease and we know that you can help!
ML4 is a neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative lysosomal disease that impairs all aspects of a growing child's function. Children with ML4 will likely never walk, never talk, will go blind, and have shortened lifespans. Approximately 80% of ML4 patients are Ashkenazi Jews, but the disease is pan-ethnic. Patients are frequently misdiagnosed, often with Cerebral Palsy. It is critical that children receive an accurate diagnosis, particularly so parents can be made aware that they are carriers of a genetic disease.
