There are many diseases and disorders that will not be cured or treated in our lifetime.
With your help, Angelman Syndrome will not be one of them.

Committed to assisting individuals living with Angelman Syndrome to realise their full potential and quality of life.
Angelman Syndrome is a rare neurogenetic disorder.  Although the cause is known, there are currently no treatments available for this disorder. 


Raising Awareness~

What does Angelman Syndrome "look" like?
How does it affect those who live with it?
What does a community like FAST mean to families?

Text book clinical characteristics are often hard to translate to "real life". Raising awareness into the condition is instrumental in an achieving accurate and timely diagnosis, connecting families to a community rich with information and hope as well as providing understanding for pathways to therapeutics.

This video is a teaser, or a back story, for a soon to be released series of short clips that will present an accurate illustration of Angelman Syndrome; the characteristics, therapies, the lives of those affected and the hope for a cure.
