The Linder Disease: Research, Treatment
In 1995, Physician, Dr. William "Billy" Linder was dying of an unnamed, undiagnosed illness. Soon it became clear his illness had been seen before, 30 years previous in his uncle, and 40 years previous in his grandmother.
Through the hard work of Harvard's Seidman Lab, it soon became clear that this illness was caused by a one-in-a-billion mutation. And while these genetic researchers - some of the best in the world - believe they know what gene it is, they haven't been able to prove it. Without proof there can be no in depth dialogue among the scientific and medical communities.
Meanwhile, 8 people are living with this gene. Some of these people are experiencing a catastrophic breakdown in their vascular systems. They need help solving the mystery of this gene and the illness it's causing.
Your help will go directly toward research, treatment and travel expenses to seek out appropriate treatment.
We are alone in our plight - but not alone. Because of people like you, we have hope.
