Sturge-Weber syndrome is a rare disease where abnormal blood vessels in the brain, skin and eye can cause seizures, paralysis, strokes, migraines, learning problems, vision loss, and other health issues.
In Memory of Hunter Andrews Nelson
November 5, 1999 - May 29, 2005
The dream for a cure lives on...
Hunter, your charming innocence and spirited determination in the face of adversity
inspired us all to seek better answers.
Your absence leaves us saddened and bereft.
Nevertheless, we commit ourselves to the path that lies before us,
for the sake of all children with Sturge-Weber syndrome.
We will not forget you.
Hunter Nelson Sturge-Weber Syndrome Center Faculty and Staff
