Hey Peeps ! We're back again for another real and raw episode of Because We are strong. This week we are sitting down with Terri, a mother of two. Her children Claire and Josef both have CLN2 Batten Disease. CLN2 is an inherited disease that is passed down through families that primarily affects the nervous system. Children with CLN2 are born with this condition, however, signs and symptoms typically begin between ages 2 and 4.
