There are certain moments in life that are forever etched in your memory. The moment my son, Justin, was diagnosed with Wilson's Disease is one such moment. Another related but much happier moment was when Justin met another Wilson's Disease patient for the first time since being diagnosed 8 years ago. At the Big Wow event in Loomis, CA, Justin met a kindred spirit in fellow patient Zach. The boys had never met before but were instantly connected by the experiences they shared together as teens living and thriving with Wilson's Disease.

My hope for the Big Wow is that it will allow other patients the opportunity to connect with one another and know they are not alone.
