Cayenne is a sweet 6 year old with red hair and blue eyes. She loves school, coloring and playing outside. She has a wonderful big brother who is her best friend- when they are not fighting and teasing each other! We are thankful everyday to have such a loving, silly and smart little girl. Unfortunately Cayenne has ataxia-telangiectasia, an incurable genetic disease that is slowly stealing her ability to walk and care for herself. Please help us fund research to find a cure for our little girl. Thank you for your generosity!


We’re asking you to be part of our Giving Circle by donating $10 or more a month using the donation form below. Your monthly gift will help maintain a constant means of support for research funding. The advancements we have made and are making can be attributed to the families and friends like you who generously support our mission to find life-improving therapies and a cure for A-T. Every dollar raised is a dollar filled with hope.

Our Giving Circle donors will receive:

  • A listing here on our Giving Circle webpage
  • Special updates
  • A yearly tax receipt
  • The satisfaction of knowing that your dollars are hard at work


Imagine a disease that combines the worst symptoms of muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, immune deficiencies, and cancer. Children with A-T are usually confined to wheelchairs by age 10 and often do not survive their teens. Because A-T is a multi-system disease, scientists believe that A-T research will help more prevalent diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, AIDS, and cancer.
