Ss Robert & William Catholic Parish
Prayer Service for Baby Liza
Elizabeth (Liza) Hope is the newest little Raddell, who will be joining her parents Nick and Ann Marie and big sisters Ella and Emily in December. Like big sister Emily, Liza's preliminary diagnosis is MPS-1 (Hurler Syndrome). Hurler Syndrome is a genetic illness that causes a lack in an enzyme needed to breakdown waste in the body. As a result, undigested sugar molecules build up, causing progressive damage to the brain, heart, and other organs, as well as many complications with bones and joints. While there is no cure, there are treatment options to slow the progression of the illness. Liza will begin enzyme replacement therapy at birth and will undergo Bone Marrow Transplant beginning in April or May.
