Recently, Dave and Kendra Riley of Ahwatukee learned two of their three childrena??2-year-old Olivia and 5-month-old Keiraa??each have a rare and aggressive genetic brain disease that impacts the nervous system: Metachromatic Leukodystrophy, or "MLD."Olivia's case has progressed, and her chances at a long future are fewer. Her motor skills have quickly been regressing, and she receives treatments in a clinical trial each week in Iowa, but she will never fully recover. Because Keira is so young and has not experienced symptoms yet, she's eligible for cutting-edge, potentially lifesaving gene therapy treatment only available in Milan, Italy. But she must get there quickly. The family needs to raise $500,000 to cover travel and medical expenses. So far, just 29 children have undergone the novel therapy.
