The funds will be put towards granting the wish of a local terminally ill three-year-old child who is courageously battling Sandoff Disease and Chronic Respiratory Failure.
NutraScience Labs’ fundraiser took place from August 8th through September 16th and was a tremendous success.

I know I speak on behalf of our employees when I say that we’re thrilled to have played a role in granting the wish of this very deserving child.” Mr. Rolfes added, “We look forward to continuing our relationship with Make-A-Wish® Suffolk County, New York for many years to come.”
