#LoveforLeighton was recently started April of 2016 when Leighton Meister then 2 years old, was diagnosed with Infantile Batten Disease, also known as CLN1, a terminal disease. In
Infantile Batten is very rare and is a recessive disorder that starts showing itself in normal otherwise healthy babies within the first year of life. Most infants lose developmental skills that they have learned such as walking. standing, and speech. By the age of 2 most children will have epileptic seizures, lose their ability to see, and will be unable to feed themselves or communicate. Eventually Infantile Batten Diseases claims their lives in early Childhood.
Last year we raised over $8000 to donate to this cause and we are hoping to exceed that this year.
