Ano ba ang Adrenoleukodystrophy o ALD? It is a rare genetic condition that causes the buildup of very long chain fatty acids (VLCFAs) in the brain. When VLCFAs accumulate, they destroy the protective myelin sheath around nerve cells, responsible for brain function. Without the myelin sheath, the nerves can no longer relay information to and from the brain.

The defective gene in ALD, commonly referred to as a genetic mutation, can cause several different but related conditions: adrenomyelopathy (AMN), Addison’s disease and — the most common and most devastating form — cerebral ALD. Cerebral ALD strikes boys between ages 4 and 10, leading to permanent disability and death usually within four to eight years.

One in every 21,000 males is born with ALD. Although females who carry the ALD gene mutation do not develop the full ALD condition, approximately half may develop some symptoms.

Meet David Paul Arañas Tolentino. Ipinanganak nuong February 6,2015. Sobrang cute, sobrang gwapo, sobrang bibo! Future pulis.

Hanggang dumating si ALD sa buhay nya.

Malabo na ang mga mata. Humihina na ang mga pandinig. At age 5, makakalimutin na sya. At ang latest, ilang beses syang nagseizure kaya kaylangan nyang maconfine. Pero sobrang tapang ni David. Lumalaban sya, despite what he is feeling right now.

Help us raise funds para sa pambayad ng bill nya sa ospital at para sa pambayad sa treatment nya para mapabagal ang progression ng kanyang sakit. Let us help this little fighter fight his battle with ALD!


Thank you very much! God bless you all po!
