About Bisous For Léo
Léo’s parents founded Bisous for Léo after learning of their son’s diagnosis with Infantile Neuroaxonal Dystrophy at just two-years-old. INAD is a rare genetic neurodegenerative disease often referred to as “Parkinson’s mixed with Alzheimer’s affecting kids.” Bisous for Léo is seeking to raise an initial $500,000 to fund research and development in gene therapy. The need for funding is urgent, as the progression of INAD is rapid after the onset of symptoms.
