Antonis says ‘thank you’ all the way from Boston

Young Antonis has sent his own ‘thank you’ message to all the people who have been supporting him all the way from Boston where he is currently with his parents.

Antonis, who turned two a few weeks ago, has been in America for a month today, undergoing gene therapy treatment for the rare degenerative disease Spinal Muscular Atrophy type 1.

Now able to smile again,  he sent the following message from the Boston Children’s Hospital which was posted on the “For Antonis with Love” Facebook page. “I can paint, I can put colour in my life, I can dream. I can. THANK YOU ”.

Ένας μήνας απο τη χορήγηση της γονιδιακής θεραπείας. Μπορώ να ζωγραφίσω, μπορώ να βάλω χρώμα στη ζωή μου, μπορώ να ονειρεύομαι. Μπορώ. ΕΥΧΑΡΙΣΤΩ
