A fundraising record to help a little girl battle a deadly disease has been shattered.

According to the Huffington Post, 20,000 people have donated nearly $1 million through Go Fund Me to find a treatment for a disease called Sanfilippo syndrome.

Four-year-old Eliza O’Neill of South Carolina is suffering with the disease, which means by the age of five, she won’t be able to speak; two years later, she won’t be able to walk.

The Huffington Post reports that the O’Neill family is hoping to raise $2.5 million to fund a trial.
