Thousands of Australian children are suffering and dying slowly from dementia, most will die before they turn 18, some will die in infancy. Batten disease is one of the most common forms of childhood dementia, and one of the biggest problems is that no one knows childhood dementia even exists.
To help raise awareness, the team at BDSRA Australia is getting behind the Childhood Dementia Initiative and their campaign for the first ever Childhood Dementia Day, this September 22nd.
