I am writing this blog today because of my first born son,Chance. He is the light of my life. He also has Angelman Syndrome. I've mentioned it before on this blog and this time you can help me. Angelman Syndrome is caused by a random deletion on Chance's 15th chromosome. It has caused him to be non-verbal, he cannot walk, he has seizures that are sometimes very severe. He also suffers from severe sensory dysfunction and somedays it makes it very hard for him to handle all the sensory input from the world which makes it hard to live a full life. Through all his struggles he remains happy and full of love.
Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics works hard every day to cure this syndrome. It has already been cured in a mouse model. Any money this foundation takes in goes straight out to research. Last year they won $250,000 in a charity contest and used every cent to fund a clinical trial that is currently in progress. This year they are in a contest through Chase bank. They need help to win, and it only takes a few clicks.
