International Niemann–Pick Disease Alliance

Sibling Spotlight: Iker

As part of this year’s Niemann-Pick Disease Awareness Month, we are putting the spotlight on siblings as we feel they are often a huge support to both their brother or sister, as well as the broader family. They are also some of the strongest advocates out there, and that’s why we are so proud of them and they deserve this platform! 

¡¡Iker es un super hermano!! Le encanta hacer reír a su hermano Álvaro, siempre está dispuesto a jugar con él y a darle muchos besos y abrazos. Iker aún es muy pequeño y no es muy consciente de la enfermedad de su hermano, pero siempre está dispuesto a superar cualquier obstáculo de la mano de su hermano.

Iker is a super brother!! He loves to make his brother Álvaro laugh, he is always willing to play with him and give him lots of kisses and hugs. Iker is still very young and is not very aware of his brother’s illness, but he is always willing to overcome any obstacle holding his brother’s hand.
