has anyone heard of alpers disease or syndrome?

My 21 year old niece just got the diagnosis about her 8 month old son. Hes had problems since birth and they just discovered this. Everything Ive read online says they dont live past a decade. The support sites I went to most of their children died at 1 year. How can I help my niece through this Im a thousand miles away. I dont know if she can handle this. Please, any advice out there?
