Batten Disease is an utterly devastating condition, yet it is widely unheard of…and we want to change that. You will meet our family, learn more about the condition, you will also be able to find out all of the different ways you can help us. Thank you visiting and we hope you are inspired to join us and be part of our journey.

Love from Gail, Matthew, Louis, Nicole and Jessica xxx

We are absolutely delighted to report that Brineura, the drug that treats Batten Disease, will be available via NHS England by the end of the year.  Thank you so much to everyone who has supported us on our journey so far – friends, family, our local community here in Throckley and Newcastle, Batten families in this country and the Batten Disease Community around the world.  We are prouder than words can describe 💕
