For more than 20 years, the Angelman Syndrome Foundation has made great strides in advancing support for individuals with Angelman syndrome and towards finding a cure. But none to date have proven more successful than accomplishments reached during the past 14 months. During this time, research funded by the ASF discovered a possible treatment for Angelman syndrome, as well as identified the underlying causes of life-threatening symptoms such as seizures. You see, your donation makes all the difference.
In fact, it is because of the support from generous people like you that we are also able to provide direct support to individuals with Angelman syndrome and their families. In 2012, the ASF opened two Angelman Syndrome Clinics – individuals with Angelman syndrome are now able to find all the medical resources they need under one roof, which they have never had before, thus enhancing their quality of life and that of their families or care providers. We have also hired a full-time Resource Specialist that connects families to necessary support services in their area, in addition to funding numerous promising research endeavors. We and the Angelman syndrome community have so much to be proud of, and with your help, we can accomplish even more.
A cure is waiting in the wings; we just need your financial support to reach it, and to continue to provide the day-to-day support that so many families need. Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution today.
