Batten Disease Family Association

The principal aim of the group is to provide contact and support to families affected by Batten disease. Families are kept informed about recent developments and research at a national and world-wide level. The BDFA hopes to raise awareness of the illness and hopefully in the future to be able to raise funds to facilitate further advances in understanding and perhaps one-day treating Batten disease.
