FAST organisations around the world come together to raise funds to support our common goal of a cure for Angelman syndrome in the annual CAN (Cure Angelman Now) Campaign.  Recognising that the last few years have been a tough environment to fundraise,  two generous sponsors have contributed so that we can offer an amazing prize of a trip to the United States to visit  FAST-funded Drs. Albert Keung and Amay Badnonkar at North Carolina State University, who are harnessing the power of organoids for AS research. This amazing trip will be drawn from the top ten fundraisers in the period July 1 2019 – December 31, 2022.
