After founding Chelsea's Hope to help connect families who share the disease LaFlora and raise awareness, Danville's the Gerbers have raised thousands of dollars.
"I think about the Gerbers often and I admire their determination against terrible odds," Stolow Sterling writes. "Thinking about Chelsea makes me appreciate my health and the good health of all my family."
