Bertrand Might is the son of former Christopher Architecture & Interiors clients Cristina and Matthew Might whose home was finished in 2018. Bertrand sadly passed away October 23rd at twelve years old. Extraordinary in many ways, Bertrand was the first patient ever diagnosed with a NGLY1 deficiency.
Christopher Architecture & Interiors staff Chris Reebals, Joanna Goodman, and Ria Neill designed the renovation for the family which included a specially designed a bedroom and bathroom for Bertrand, accessible for his needs. When visiting with the family, they spoke so highly of our CAI team and how the design of his space made their lives even a little bit easier. They recognize not all families are as fortunate to have a space designed to fit their child’s every need, which is the sole mission behind Christopher Kids. His loved ones will miss Bertrand tremendously, and his parents are infinitely proud of their son and the legacy he has left. As the first patient diagnosed with his condition, he has been an instrumental case study in discovery of treatments, legislation as well as funding for patients like him.
In lieu of flowers, the Might family has elected to ask loved ones to donate to Christopher Kids because of the impact intentional design had on their family’s life. We are honored they have chosen us out of so many worthy causes, and I have launched this page in his honor. With these funds, we will work with the Might family to continue serving others with similar experiences to Bertrand's and continue to carry on his legacy. If you feel led, please feel free to donate in his honor and send the family a message. All messages will be collected and passed along to the family.
Above all, please keep the Mights in your thoughts and prayers in this new season of life.
