Colin Farrell Discusses His Son’s Angelman Syndrome

HollywoodNews.com: Actor Colin Farrell appeared on ‘Late Show with David Letterman’ Thursday night to promote his film, ‘Fright Night’. On the show, Colin opened up about his son’s Angelman Syndrome.
Colin’s son, James, 7, was diagnosed with the syndrome, which according to Colin, affects one in 30,000 children. Since it’s a rare syndrome, Colin said “there’s not that much funding because it doesn’t benefit pharmaceutical companies,” according to OK Magazine.
The father of two asked those who wanted to help, to visit CureAngelman.org, and make a donation. “James started walking just short of his 4th birthday and doesn’t have any verbal speech, but Colin made sure to say that his boy is a ‘a really happy boy’.”
