Mrs. Leah Shore Brodeur owns and operates The Pressure's Off custom bake shop. Not only are the cakes, cupcakes and pastries a marvel to behold...they taste AWESOME. The cake in the photo is the one Leah personally gave Chase (namesake of this foundation) as a 4th Birthday present.
The company graciously donated low sugar frosting cupcakes as well for our first foundation event. On 12/12/13 we had a meet and greet at The Manton Center of Boston Children's Hospital to learn more about Niemann Pick Type C from the esteemed Dr. Marc Patterson of Mayo Clinic, a leader in the NPC field. Because NPC families and their children were going to be in attendance we had to be cognizant of the affects of sugar and a drug called Miglastat most of them take. Leah nailed it!
Without the support of family, friends and community we could not wage war with the disease assaulting our children. We are forever greatful for each and every one of you. We thank you for asking about our loved ones and we smile inside when you ask us about their illness, becuase we know you care. Thank you for spreading awareness and sharing our burden.
Special thanks to businesses and organizations that have helped us in various ways to fundraise for a cure.
The Paternal Great-Grandfather of our Namesake Chase, Mr. Charles Turner, has aided in awareness and fundraising via the Knights of Columbus, Lincoln Chapter. The fraternal organization formed in 1882 is still true to its founding principles of charity, unity and fraternity. These kindhearted Knights aid the Niemann Pick Children in battle, for that and their devout support we are forever greatful.
Jennie Raises a lot too! Ms. Amias, blogger and runner, attends synagogue with a young lady living with Niemann Pick Type C. She ran a half marathon in May 2014
to raise research dollars. Thank you to her and her many supporters:
