Who is Cal?

Calliope Joy Carr is the youngest child of Pat and Maria Carr. Cal was diagnosed with leukodystrophy at the age of 2. She is 8 and thanks to her amazing hospice nurses and doctors, she laughs and smiles every day.


What is leukodystrophy?

Leukodystrophy is a family of 50 disorders that affect 1 in 7000 people. Leukodystrophy is a genetic, neurological disease that causes children who appear healthy at birth to lose the abiity to walk, talk, feed themselves, and see. Canavan disease and Tay-Sachs disease are in the leukodystrophy family.


Why do we sell cupcakes?

In 2013, Cal's older brother PJ suggested we start selling cupakes to help the doctors "find a cure" for leukodystrophy. Five years and 35,000 cupcakes later, The Calliope Joy Foundation has raised more than $400,000 to fund research, improve care, and support families. Cal's Foundation helped establish the nation's first Leukodystrophy Center of Excellence at "Cal's hospital," the world renowned Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
