    A friend of mine has a son with a debilitating disease called San Filippo Syndrome. It causes developmental delays, eventual mental degradation, and ultimately a young death. A group is trying to develop a cure for the disease and is entered into a grant program sponsored by Pepsi. The grant is now in the number 3 position, with the top two receiving the grant money.My friend is putting everything he has into trying to find a cure for this disease before time runs out for his son.
    If you feel so inclined, please visit the site below and vote for this grant. You can vote once a day per email address.

    also, you can link to your facebook page and ask for votes. Salt Lake City, Utah will receive a million dollars to our food bank (and Ogden, Utah 100,000) because we were number 1 in votes (Walmart give away)using facebook. I will link this cause to my facebook.

    My friend's son was featured in the American Eagle 15 seconds of fame in Times Square in NYC today. His dad was there and witnessed people taking out their cell phones and texting in their votes. It's amazing! Keep voting...5 days left!
