Veronica is a girl nine years old.
She, as her sister Maria Grazia who died a year ago, suffers from
Hemophagocytosis Syndrome. She has often a very high and continuous
temperature (treated with antibiotics), her spleen and her liver are
enlarged, and she has a brain inflammation ("phlogosis", treated with cortisone)
and viral infection. Her blood tests are generally altered, with low
platelet levels.

Please, her sister died of the same illness at the age of 10 after much pain.
This is a rare disease, and the family needs to gather as much information as
possible about it, and about hospitals and doctors specialized in the treatment
of this syndrome all over the world.
