Okla. couple's 3 children struck by fatal disease

CORDELL, Okla. (AP) - A Cordell couple with three children
struck by a fatal disease hope to raise enough money for two of
their children to get a bone-marrow transplant to help fight the
illness.
Their third child is too ill for the procedure to work.
Jennifer Snider says her 11-year-old son Anthony Middleton was
diagnosed with ALD in January. The rare disease is inherited and it
leads to brain damage and death. Anthony is now in a wheelchair and
his mind is like that of a 5-year-old.
Snider's two other sons also have the disease but haven't yet
shown symptoms.
Anthony says his one wish is for his brothers to go to Duke
University for bone-marrow transplants that might prolong their
lives. Friends have created the Middleton Foundation to help raise
the $130,000 needed.
