What makes this individual special, unique and a role model for others

David’s family lived in England for 3 years when he was young. Because of David’s disease, they started to receive help from the UK MPS Society and doctors in England. David’s mom Virginia was moved by their selfless contributions and decided to bring this warm feeling back to the MPS children in their own country.

The Taiwan MPS Society has successfully connected the Asia Pacific regions by establishing the Asia Pacific MPS Organization. Its goal is to help Asian countries establish their own MPS Societies, which will enable the MPS kids to be treated by doctors and taken care of in the right way. In 2008 and 2009, the Taiwan MPS Society hosted the Asia Pacific MPS Conference, with 11 countries in attendance. We will continue to raise awareness throughout our region.

The lessons we must learn in our lives are those that can transform us into a better person. The MPS children are our teachers to those lessons. We are grateful of giving birth to these angels. From them, we learn patience and the treasuries of life.
