My husband suffers from Neiman PIck C disease. We are very stressed out about this assessment. My husband is not very articulate in answering questions and I am worried he might fail the assessment.
It is a very rare disease 1 in 150,000 and is genetic and no cure avilable. ASSESSMENT is on 15 dec 2010. http://www.niemannpick.org.uk/what_is_npd/type_c.html
Any advice will be appreciated.
