The Krabbe Disease is a rare, degenerative and often fatal disorder associated with the nervous system. A genetically inherited condition, people affected with this have the inability to produce enough of a substance called galactosylceramidase, which is needed to make myelin sheath that surrounds and protects the nerve fibers. Without the myelin sheath, the cells in the nerves of the brain begin to die and this will slowly impact the entire body. The symptoms of the disease are visible from the infancy such as feeding problems, fevers, persistent vomiting, loss of head control, excessive crying, irritability, seizures, deafness and muscle spasms.
