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.
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
All proceeds go to the A-T Children's Project- a nonprofit organization founded in 1993 by Brad Margus, a father of two children with A-T. The primary objective of the A-TCP is to coordinate and support biomedical research, scientific conferences, and a clinical center aimed at finding life-improving therapies and a cure for Ataxia-Telangiectasia. Because A-T is so rare, the majority of research is funded by the grassroots efforts of the family and friends of those affected. Every single donation received plays a huge role in a better future for kids with A-T! (via @emmysrusticrun and atcp.org)
