Just before his 2nd birthday, Charlie was diagnosed with a debilitating genetic disease so rare that it doesn’t even have a name - yet. With less than 300 known cases worldwide this incredibly rare disease is referred to as SLC6A1, a genetic disorder that causes epilepsy, autism, movement disorder, ADHD and global developmental delays.
After years of struggle and nonstop fundraising, a cure is finally on the horizon using gene therapy. We are now just 1 MILLION DOLLARS away from making this a reality. Once we meet this fundraising goal, we are within reach of a clinical trial which will offer a lifesaving treatment to those suffering from SLC6A1.
Please follow our journey and consider a donation to help Charlie and many other children battling SLC6A1 have A BETTER CHANCE AT LIFE!
