For a future without childhood dementia


Childhood Dementia (neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis, or NCL) is a deadly metabolic disease that has barely been researched until now. Affected children lose their eyesight, suffer from epileptic seizures and steadily lose all mental and physical capabilities. Usually they die before the age of 30. We, the NCL Foundation, are dedicated to promoting national and international research in order to give affected children hope that new treatment and healing approaches will be found.
