WARREN CITY HALL LIT UP TONIGHT TO BRING AWARENESS TO LISSENCEPHALY


Tonight Warren City Hall will be lit up with colors signifying: blue for rare disease, grey for grey matter, and lavender for epilepsy. This disease is LISSENCEPHALY, a rare, gene-linked brain malformation.

Tonight Warren City Hall will be lit up with colors signifying: blue for rare disease, grey for grey matter, and lavender for epilepsy. This disease is LISSENCEPHALY, a rare, gene-linked brain malformation. Warren resident Janis Kinkela contacted me about a proclamation for awareness and lighting up city hall. Her granddaughter Ada was diagnosed with it. I also met with Ada as well. While there is presently no cure for this disease children can show progress in their development over time. Bringing awareness brings hope that someone may become interested and that person may lead to a cure! In the photo is Ada Bradlee Underwood and her mother Erika Underwood, and grandmother Janis Kinkela. *Interesting to note is that Ada is the granddaughter of former Warren Councilman Floyd Underwood.

Sincerely,

Mayor James R. Fouts
