Jack Marshall

Jack Marshall is 12 years old. His youngest sister Ruby who is 18 months old has been diagnosed with Pearsons Syndrome which is under the umbrella of Mitochondrial disease for which the Lily Foundation is all about. Ruby has mass deletions in her mitochondrial DNA, although a genetic issue it was just a random mutation and she is extremely unlucky. There are around 20-30 living children with this syndrome in the world right now, that's how rare and unknown it is. There is no cure for this and Ruby will deteriorate over the next few years.
