Mariana :: arthrogryposis renal dysfunction cholestasis syndrome
Meet Mariana. Mariana was a precious little girl whose every moments will forever be treasured by her family. Mariana was diagnosed with ARC Syndrome (arthrogryposis-renal dysfunction-cholestasis syndrome) an extremely rare and fatal autosomal recessive multisystem disorder caused by mutations in the VPS33B or VIPAR gene. Mariana’s family knows this diagnosis all too well because two of her siblings had this same genetic disorder and passed away from it several years ago. There is no known treatment for ARC Syndrome. Mariana was kept comfortable by her amazing team of doctors and nurses at Valley Children’s.
Please join Sweet Nectar Society in sending Mariana’s loved ones continued prayers and words of comfort.
