As parents, family members, friends, and concerned citizens in this community, let us all be brave and support the Brizzee family in their recent discovery of their daughter, Avery’s rare and terminal diagnosis of MPS III, or mucopolysaccharide disease, also known as Sanfilippo syndrome.
We have seen Avery featured in many local and national news sources, including East Idaho News and Post Register, among many others.
We live in an amazing community that is BRAVE along with us! We are looking forward to the fundraiser 5k and 10k race called Bravery 4 Avery. This race will take place at Snake River Landing on May 21st, 2022 at 8 am. We have three goals that we want to accomplish: 1: raise $10,000 to help cover medical expenses, 2: to show the Brizzee family that the East Idaho community supports and loves them, and 3: educating the community on this obscure disease.
