THANK YOU, FROM MILA!

At just 6-years-old, Mila was given a death sentence - Batten disease. But thanks to a pioneering scientist, Dr. Tim Yu, and Charles River Labs whose employees worked evenings, weekends and holidays in a race against time, Mila received her first dose of milasen just one year later. She became the first person in the world to receive a fully personalized genetic medicine. Since then, Mila has shown some promising signs of stabilization and improvement - an amazing result given the steep downward decline she was on.

Paving a New Path of HOPE

We continue to fight alongside Mila. Although we don’t know what her future holds, we do know that her fight is giving incredible hope to others across hundreds of rare diseases that otherwise would have no chance.

Milasen is changing the landscape of drug development. At Mila's Miracle Foundation, we’re working hard together with many players in science and medicine, including Charles River Labs, to open up this new path of truly personalized medicines to the Milas that will follow.
