 YOUR IMPACT

Imagine having a child who suffers through dozens of seizures on a daily basis. Their GI issues are so severe that they may require a feeding tube. They’re non-verbal, so it’s hard for them to tell you if they’re in pain or need your help. They’re resilient and love you, but their inability to easily communicate with you frustrates them and leads to challenging behaviors.

What is the underlying cause behind these symptoms? A duplication in their 15th chromosome- called Dup15q Syndrome.

Now imagine that you can help them in a real, disease-modifying way. Precise, genetically-based therapies are the future of modern medicine. We are embarking on a new era of disease-modifying treatments that will meaningfully alter the future of our children. You can be a part of that change. Your sponsorship will fund our tireless efforts to create a life-changing therapeutic designed specifically for individuals with Dup15q syndrome.

Meet Fiona

 

Fiona

Fiona is a beautiful, sweet, and funny 3-year old little girl with Dup15q syndrome. By the time she was 8 months old, she was having dozens of seizures a day. She continues to face significant challenges in her daily life. She just learned to walk in January of this year, but falls frequently due to low muscle tone, a common symptom with Dup15q.

In an attempt to keep her seizures in check, Fiona is kept on a very restricted diet that keeps her from sharing in typical “kid foods” with her brothers and sisters. Because she is non-verbal and has cognitive delays, Fiona frequently grows frustrated and experiences severe tantrums and occasionally self-harming behaviors. Still, there is cause for hope.

Join us as we fundraise for a brighter future for Fiona and others like her through development of targeted genetic therapies.
