Students dressed as identical pairs or triplets and donated money towards twin brothers Aaron and Ryan Munteanu�s leukodystrophy treatment.

The rare disorder affects white matter in the brain and the growth or development of myelin sheath (fatty tissue that covers nerve fibres).

It means their motor function and muscle rigidity is reduced, while sight and hearing degenerates.

Recently the boys� mother, Mandy, discovered a treatment offered by a Queensland doctor that can improve their quality of life and possibly slow down the progression of the disease.

But the treatment is not covered by health insurance, so the family has set about raising $70,000 towards making it happen.

So far, they have raised more than $8000 through a Go Fund Me page and Gidgegannup Primary School helped gather $1048.95. Visit http://www.gofundme.com/pdo2c4 to donate.
