Donate Now to Help Find a Cure for A-T and Support TEAM SAMI!
In May, I decided to run the Disney Marathon (my first marathon) to raise money for AT Children's Project. ATCP raises money for life-improving therapies and a cure for AT. This year is uniquely important to run and fundraise because AT research has had a recent breakthrough in a new gene therapy called ASO.
WHAT IS A-T?
Imagine a disease that combines the worst symptoms of muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, immune deficiencies, and cancer. Children with A-T are usually confined to wheelchairs by age 10 and often do not survive their teens. Because A-T is a multi-system disease, scientists believe that A-T research will help more prevalent diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, AIDS, and cancer.
