CMRI - 3 Peaks NSW 2022

Why I'm doing 3 Peaks Adventure

As part of Children’s Medical Research Institute's 3 Peaks Adventure, I’ll be raising funds for treatments and cures into children's genetic diseases. Why?

I was lucky to have worked on Charlize's condition with Professor Ian Alexander's team at Children’s Medical Research Institute. Charlize has a severe metabolic disorder where protein is toxic and very quickly can give her brain damage. She had 2 liver transplants. Charlize’s life relies so heavily on receiving better treatments and cures. Her family kindly donated her liver cells to Ian's lab, and they will continue to develop gene therapy for Propionic Acidemia. 

Gene therapy will replace or edit the faulty gene, eliminating the need for liver transplants. Children like Charlize will be able to live happy, normal lives.

Hope for Charlize | CMRI (cmrijeansforgenes.org.au)
