23-Month-Old Succumbs to Niemann-Pick Disease Type A/B

Caileen Harley Harrison (NPA/B)
May 7, 2008 – April 19, 2010

We are very saddened to pass along word of the death of little Caileen Harley Harrison, just short of her second birthday, due to complications of Niemann-Pick Disease Type A/B. Caileen was the daughter of NNPDF member Valerie Montgomery and Collis Harrison of California.

Kelly Puente of the Long Beach California Press-Telegram filed a story earlier this week about Valerie and Caileen. Caileen brought her family great joy despite her struggle with Niemann-Pick Disease. Visit the NNPDF NewsLine for a link to the Press-Telegram story and more photos.

Our deepest sympathy goes out to all Caileen’s family and friends in their loss.
