Cure MECP2 duplication syndrome
Description
MECP2 Duplication Syndrome is a rare and devestating neurological disorder causing many developmental delays and so much more. Doctors located in Houston, Texas are so close to curing this disorder but we need help raising awareness and more funds to support the cure! Brantley is 15 months old and deserves to be carefree like any other kid his age, instead he endures multiple hospital stays and a constant stream of procedures. You can find his Facebook page "Praying for Brantley" or follow our blog for updates https://bloggingforbrantley.wordpress.com/. To find more about Brantley's disorder go to www.401project.com and like us on Facebook!

This is my grandson, Brantley. He has the genetic disorder MECP2. Please jump to the page and click the arrow to vote. He and his mother and father, my daughter Taryn Taylor and my son-in-law Bryan Taylor , could get the opportunity to be on Ellen and educate people on this rare disorder. ‪#‎GoBrantleyBrigade‬#

Brantley! 330 points
Brantley is now 15 months old. He has a feeding tube, has had oxygen repeatedly due to respiratory infections. He has had 3 surgeries and numerous hospital stays. Through it all he smiles and is such a happy baby. MECP2 is so rare even our doctors have to research it. Please help us raise awareness. Researchers are so close to helping these kids and the parents are raising these sick babies and trying to do fund raisers to save their children. Please help us let the world know about MECP2. Brantley deserves a life without pain and the ability to run and play!
