BUFFALO, N.Y. — Congressman Brian Higgins announced more than $2 million in funding to support Krabbe disease research.
The money will go toward the Hunter James Kelly Research Institute at the University at Buffalo.
The $2 million will be spread over five years, and the doctors and researchers awarded the grant hope to eventually find a cure for Krabbe's disease. That's the same disease that Jim Kelly's son Hunter had.
It was an effort between the Kelly family and the UB administration.
