  • Hi! Can you add World Sanfilippo Awareness Day to the calendar? It’s every year on Nov. 16. World Sanfilippo Awareness Day is about spreading awareness and sparking conversations globally about Sanfilippo Syndrome, a disease few have heard of. This special day of Awareness is in honor of the children around the world living with Sanfilippo Syndrome today, and those who have passed away. It also honors the families of these precious children. It is a community-wide awareness day and not specific to any foundation or organization.
