I'm sure some of you may have seen coverage on the present fund raising efforts for a young girl called Eliza O'Neill, by funding trials of a new treatment for a rare genetic condition she suffers from, if you haven't read it here: savingeliza.smugmug.com/Story

The condition is know as MPS in Ireland and the UK and  children with Sanfilippo disease are missing an enzyme which is essential in cutting up  used mucopolysaccharides. The incompletely broken down mucopolysaccharides remain stored in cells in the body causing progressive damage. Babies and small children may show little sign of the disease but, as more and more cells become damaged, symptoms start to appear.

Under the guidance of Ben VongWong lots of photographers are now offering prints of their images for this great cause! all prints available can be seen here: savingeliza.smugmug.com/Featured/

Every cent you spend will go towards Eliza’s cause and you will own a Limited Edition print from one of your favorite photographers!

If you’re a photographer and you want to help, head over to find out how to submit your work and become a part of this journey : savingeliza.smugmug.com/Submit-A-Photo
