My sister has been my rock every step of the way for the past 4 years. By chance, she was in town the day the girls were diagnosed in February 2017 and within days found us a grief counselor. She was with us in New York at the University of Rochester two weeks after diagnosis. She answers endless phone calls when I need medical advice or emotional support. It helps that she is a Physician Assistant. Sometime while working, raising her three children and being our rock, she set a goal to raise awareness of rare disease within the medical community. So I am not surprised that today we celebrate her accomplishment. CONGRATULATIONS Kathryn Koenig Niederer on the article ‘Juvenile Batten Disease: A Diagnostic Conundrum’ published in this months Journal of the American Academy of Physician Assistants, JAAPA . https://journals.lww.com/jaapa/Fulltext/2021/06000/Juvenile_Batten_disease__A_diagnostic_conundrum.8.aspx?context=FeaturedArticles&collectionId=2
