2 Local Brothers Battle Pediatric Alzheimer's

Posted: Updated:
BRISTOL, Pa. -

Alzheimer's is a devastating disease.  It can rob us of our loved ones, usually in their old age.

Unfortunately, there is another rare disease that can show the same symptoms as Alzheimer's, but it affects children.

It's officially called Neimann Pick Disease, but it's also known as pediatric Alzheimer's.

FOX 29's Stephanie Esposito introduces you to a family that is dealing with this disease and trying to raise funds to find a cure.

Meet the Coppolas.
