My Story

Karly is a 7yr old little girl who brightens the lives of all those who know her. She was born with a rare genetic disorder known as MPS-1 (mucopolysaccharidosis) or Hurler syndrome. Around the age of 3 years she started an enzyme replacement therapy that she receives weekly for her MPS-1 and then at the age of 4 she was diagnosed with a pontine glioma (brain stem tumor). Every time you see Karly, the lasting impression is her smile.
