Hunter travels his own development path, but after the inability to sit up during his first year, our pediatrician sent us to a neurologist.  We were originally devastated when, just days before adopting Hunter at 17 months old, Jennifer and I received genetic testing results revealing that he had MECP2 Duplication Syndrome (MDS). We now seek to live each day in the moment.  In doing so, 3-year-old Hunter has learned to eat, crawl, walk, communicate, and learn.  However, we want what every parent wants for Hunter – a long, fruitful, and mostly struggle free life.  But MDS creates challenges to that due to its numerous disabilities and symptoms – poor motor skills, immune system dysfunction, gastro reflux, hypotonia, feeding difficulties, seizures, intellectual disabilities, and autism – the list goes on.  The work of researchers and interested pharmaceutical companies provides us hope and is driving us to do everything we can for Hunter and all children with MDS.

Our goal is to raise $30,000 between now and the new year to support furthering research efforts that deliver on the hope that MDS parents have been given for their children.  We plan to do this by offering to match the first $15,000 in donations.
