Families affected by Prader-Willi to #LightUptheLake @ScrippsResearch Saturday, Jan. 19

Fundraiser supporting research to be broadcast on Facebook Live 
 
JUPITER, FL – Jan. 19, 2019 – Imagine feeling constant hunger so intense that it’s akin to starvation. Children with Prader-Willi syndrome have a specific type of genetic damage to chromosome 15 that causes them to experience that frantic feeling of starvation around the clock. No matter how much they eat, they never feel satisfied. Equally tragic, all of the ailments associated with overeating—including obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease—go hand-in-hand with Prader-Willi syndrome, and can lead to a shortened lifespan.
