A Better Chance For Anita

Meet Anita. She is almost three years old and is 1 of just 4 children in all of Argentina that has an extremely rare disease called ROHHAD syndrome, which causes rapid weight gain, apnea, and other neurological effects. This sweet little girl needs a genetic test as a prerequisite to determining the appropriate medicines to treat the disease. Her parents (her mother Agustina, who works making handmade chocolates, and her father Horacio, who is currently seeking employment) cannot afford this test.

That’s where we come in. Please help us #LIFTOTHERS and raise $1,500 USD (200,000 Argentina pesos) to pay for the genetic test, and give Anita a better chance to fight this rare disease.
