David was born on October 16, 1968, and is one of four boys—all in their forties. All four boys, their mother says, “are afflicted with late-onset Tay-Sachs. Just getting each one through each day is an accomplishment.” Iris, their mother, is amazed at her sons. “More than anything I admire their ability to accept their limitations and laugh at themselves.”
Iris would like to thank the National Tay Sachs and Allied Diseases Foundation.
