Batten Disease and Research Association Charity Profile

BDSRA is an international support and research networking organization for families of children and young adults with an inherited neurological degenerative disorder known as Batten Disease.

In an effort to bring those common goals to fruition, the Batten Disease Support and Research Association - (BDSRA) was formed in July, 1986, by Gary and Judith Grant of Spanaway, Washington, who are parents of three Batten victims. Seeing the tremendous need for a unified entity that would work toward important goals and recognizing, as well, the need for support among victims and their families, the founders designed the association to:

-maximize the opportunities of victims of Batten to lead as normal lives as possible.

-provide a parent communication network, information and emotional support to families of persons with Batten Disease.

-educate lay persons and professionals about the special needs of Batten Disease victims and their families.

-act as a national registry for NCL researchers throughout the world.
