THIS GIVING TUESDAY…

Charles River Laboratories is promoting an internal employee giving campaign to benefit Mila's Miracle Foundation and other nonprofits. All employee donations made to Mila's Miracle Foundation during this campaign will be matched dollar for dollar by Charles River. Help us make the most out of this incredibly generous opportunity by donating to our campaign today. Every dollar we raise during will be used to fund novel treatments for other children just like Mila.

About Mila's Miracle Foundation…

Mila's Miracle Foundation was formed upon learning that six-year-old Mila had Batten Disease, a devastating and fatal genetic condition. We raced against time to start a first in the world patient-customized genetic treatment for Mila. Our scientific work has now opened up an entirely new treatment path for children across hundreds of rare diseases. Mila’s life has a greater purpose than ever imagined when she was born. Our hope is that her fight sparks light where there was once just darkness. We need your help now to give children like Mila a second chance at life.

Crl 4 MMF…

Charles River Laboratories and it’s amazing team of employees have gone above and beyond for Mila. Fighting alongside us from the beginning, CRL has played a major role in the development of Milasen, the first-of-its-kind ASO drug customized to Mila’s mutation, that was designed, manufactured, tested, approved, and administered to Mila in early 2018. While Mila’s treatment has been ongoing, CRL continues to check in with us. The team at CRL has provided fundraising and manufacturing support, advocacy and awareness outreach among the drug development industry, and even and exclusive look at life with a rare disease in their recent documentary series that features Mila’s daily fight against Batten Disease. Thanks to the support of each and every member of the Charles River team, Mila’s story is spreading far and wide, and we are continuing to make a difference in the lives of children and families just like ours. Together, we are paving a new path that has the potential to save lives and give hope to all the rare fighters that follow in Mila’s footsteps!
