As we close out 2015 and ring in 2016 we are extremely blessed and have so much to be thankful for. Emersyn is going to be 10 in February and what a celebration of life we are going to have. Her health has been on her side which is a blessing in itself. Although Emersyn is now limited to a wheelchair, her spirit, determination, and motivation amazes me every day. She is my inspiration every single day.

The A-TCP is working diligently to find life improving therapies which gives us hopes that will lead us to a cure. You can help my donating to Emersyn’s monthly circle which will contribute to Emersyn having her DNA sequenced. Somewhere in her genome may lay the secret to finding the CURE for A-T or slowing the progression of this fatal disease. ‘Tis the season for giving, so please help sponsor Emersyn ($1500) so she can have her DNA sequenced.


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.

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.
