On Sept, 18, 2011, The National Tay-Sachs & Allied Diseases
Organization will launch the first annual “Day of Hope” campaign. How Does the Day of Hope Benefit Research?
As you’ve heard, research is moving quickly toward clinical trials for Tay-Sachs and Sandhoff diseases. Over $900,000 has been pledged, but we still need to raise over $350,000 in the next few months to be able start the trials by the end of 2012. Let’s band together on September 18th and see what we can do collectively!
There is also research focused on Canavan disease gene therapy, stem cells, and anti-inflammatory therapies for Tay-Sachs and related diseases that is funded by the NTSAD Research Initiative.
In order to keep research on track, the Day of Hope is dedicated to specifically funding research. Visit http://www.NTSAD.org for more
