The local girl suffers from GAN, a rare genetic disorder that only affects 70 families worldwide. In a charity campaign, the SCHÖLLY staff collected funds for Lilly´s further treatment.
The little girl´s family expressed their sincere thanks for the donation. In addition to Lilly´s treatment, the funds will be used to support medical and scientific research into this disease.
A privately-financed study in the USA deals with an entirely new gene therapy that could slow or even halt the progression of the illness. Lilly has already undergone first medical examinations within this program.
