Liam’s Story

In late 2017, after months of unexplained seizures, Liam received a heartbreaking diagnosis of CLN2 (late-infantile Battens Disease). The Walden Family continues to make bi-monthly trips to Chicago so that Liam may receive new treatment to slow the progression of this devastating disease.

The Waldens have received an outpouring of support from both within and outside their community. Liam’s Dad, Billy, is a golfer and many of his friends and fellow Monticello Golf Club members are excited to plan a day to provide the family with an outpouring of love and support on the golf course.
