Impact of Niemann-Pick Type C

Actelion Pharmaceuticals LTD produced a short video on two families and how Niemann-Pick Type C Disease has impacted their lives. Hollie Carter and Annie Pyne are featured in this video. They both are youngsters living with this disease. At first sight we all instantly start to evaluate what someone with Niemann-Pick Type C looks like or any other debilitating disease. The important feature to note is this disease can strike at any time. Some look completely “OK” and others you can tell something just isn't right by their actions. Either way this horrible disease claims their life in it's unrelenting attack on the nervous system.
