“It is of extreme importance that every person in the CDG community becomes one united voice and takes every conquest in a specific CDG as a victory for the whole community. It is important to keep this in mind because CDG are all connected and a new finding regarding one of them will give tools to improve basic and therapeutic research in the others.” By Vanessa Ferreira, sister to Princess Liliana who lives with CDG.
