“For us, the support we got made the biggest difference. Which is part of why it’s so important to raise funds. You want the research, you want treatments specific to children, not adults. Because they’re totally different people. Different dosages, different treatments, and you want support for families and siblings. I was a sibling that lost my sister and they didn’t have that back then either, which was very difficult,” Souza voiced.
