Meet Blake, Graham and Ian

"Blake, Graham, and Ian share more than just good looks! 😉 All three share a very rare genetic disease called Ataxia-Telangiectasia. Ataxia-telangiectasia, or “A-T,” is a progressive, degenerative disease. Because this disease is rare, it is considered an orphan disease - meaning due to its rarity there is a lack of a market large enough to gain support and resources for discovering treatments for it. This disease makes kids more prone to cancers and illnesses, makes walking, balance, and hand coordination difficult, among other awful symptoms. Most kids end up wheelchair bound by age 10 and lose full function of speech and eye control. Life expectancy for people with A-T is a young adult due to their increased risks of infection. Simply put - it’s really really terrible. They desperately need more research and treatments, as do the other children suffering from this disease. Please consider donating today to the A-T Children’s project in their honor."
"Both Graham and Ian were diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at age 2, and have been thru more in their short lives than most adults have. Graham finished 3.5 years of chemotherapy this last March, and Ian is still undergoing treatment. Those who know Blake, Graham, & Ian know how light hearted they are, how strong they are, and how happy they are. Despite being dealt this hand in life they are amazing and have been given special talents and attributes. The love to be with one another and they adore playing with legos, board games, and Minecraft. They are always wearing a smile and always willing to try their hardest. Their parents feel so lucky to have 3 of the best kids in the entire world." Kadee Morrison, rockstar mama of 3
