Three years ago, Missy and Wayne Herndon received the shocking news that their then 6 year old son, Will, had been diagnosed with Batten disease. Like the Bensons, the Herndons responded with a “knowing” that they had to do something to make a difference. Shortly after Will’s diagnosis, the Herndons created the Will Herndon Fund and joined BBDF to collaborate their efforts to fund research to find a treatment or a cure for their children.
