Sebastian's life was changed
by TIGET Research
TIGET (Telethon Institute for Gene Therapy) is world leader in gene therapy, helping children and families from all over the world. Many of the children benefitting from TIGEM therapies and treatments are American,
such as Sebastian from California diagnosed with ADA-SCID.
Sebastian was born in San Francisco in 2002.
Before contacting TIGET, his family went through years of battling infections and frequent hospitalization.
Sebastian was successfully treated on the ADA-SCID gene therapy trial when he was 6,
and is now a healthy twelve year old boy.
“Before gene therapy, we couldn’t think of a future for our son,” said Sebastian’s mom, Lynette.
“But now, everything’s changed. We have so much to look forward to, thanks to TIGET”.
