Drew's Hope Foundation

Drew's Hope Research Foundation was established in 2007 after the Ferrandino's received the devastating news that their five year old son, Drew, had Batten Disease.  Drew, who turned 12 in February, has gone from a child who once ran, jumped, and played to a child needing constant care.  Every day is a struggle, but Drew continues to smile regardless.
