ILLINOIS (WTHI) - Friday is Cute Syndrome Awareness Day; it’s a rare genetic mutation that causes seizures and delayed development.
Only 250 cases of the disorder are known world-wide with one of them in the Wabash Valley.
That's two-and-a-half year old Clayton Gard.
Since the disease is so rare - most fundraising is done by the families of affected kids.
A chili cook off fundraiser is being held next week in Clayton's honor. It will take place Feb. 13 at the Marshall High School gym from 5 to 7 p.m. (CT).
Tickets are $5 at the door.
