Event description

Description

Angels for Ally is hosting their Annual Ally’s Beef and Beer Event. This year proceeds will benefit Garrett Coyne and his family. Garrett is a second grader in the Boyertown School District who suffers from a rare, genetic, fatal neurological disease known as Batten disease. Garrett was diagnosed with Batten Disease in September of 2014. At that time Garrett’s parents, Joe and Nancy Coyne along with friends and family developed a non-profit, Garrett the Grand Batten Fighter to help promote awareness and fund research for Batten Disease.

Battern Disease currently has no treatment, no cure, and is not preventable. The disease causes toxicity within specific cells found in the brain, retina and central nervous system.Children are generally born healthy and grow normally until one day the progression of Batten Disease shows its colors. Initial symptoms are usually seizures, vision deterioration or loss of intellectual function. Those affected suffer progressive neurological impairment. Eventually, they are bedridden and lose all skills. Children become completely dependent, unable to feed themselves or communicate. Due to its progressive prognosis, all Batten sufferers ultimately require 24 hour care. .

Garrett is now legally blind and has many developmental delays. He has a nurse that accompanies him to school each day. The road ahead is frightening and thoughts of Garrett’s needs and constant care over a period of time while he succumbs to this deadly degenerative disease brings intense emotion.
