The Reedy Family
Chase's big brother Cameron does not have NPC, but he fights for Chase in his struggle against the disease.
Chase was born in August 2009. In September 2011, Chase was officially diagnosed with Niemann-Pick Type C, and four months later he began to use cyclodextrin. However, the FDA prevented Chase from using cyclodextrin for around one year, during which time the disease progressed significantly. In December 2013, he was again allowed to fight NPC using cyclodextrin.
Niemann-Pick Type C
Chase's NPC onset very early, which meant Shannon needed to do something quickly to save her son's life.
