In 2007, Eryn Casey was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Coffin-Lowry Syndrome. Casey struggles with learning and gross motor disabilities along with seizure-like “drop attacks.” Her parents struggled for more than four years to try and find a diagnosis for Casey. Most doctors told them she had pervasive developmental delay or autism. Finally, after seeking help from a genetic specialist at Stanford Medical Center, they were able to get a diagnosis for Casey’s disorder.
All net proceeds will be donated to the Coffin-Lowry Syndrome Foundation.
