What is Sanfilippo Syndrome?
Sanfilippo Syndrome is like Alzheimer’s, but in children. Sanfilippo Syndrome is a terminal, neurodegenerative disease that causes children to lose all the skills they’ve gained, suffer seizures and movement disorders, experience pain and suffering, and then die.
Sanfilippo Syndrome is caused by a single gene defect which leads to lack of a necessary enzyme in the body. This lack of enzyme results in the build-up of toxic storage in every cell, and is especially harmful to the brain. This build-up causes a cascade of detrimental effects and ultimately death.
Currently there is no FDA-approved treatment or cure for Sanfilippo Syndrome.
How is Cure Sanfilippo Foundation helping fund a cure?
Cure Sanfilippo Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit (Tax ID 46-432131), leads in driving research to accelerate discovery of a cure for Sanfilippo Syndrome.
In just seven years, generous donors have enabled Cure Sanfilippo to generate more than $10 million through grassroots and viral fundraising to support and/or architect 30+ research projects globally. Read about them here.
The Foundation’s thought-leadership enables it to chart a progressive course to attaining and FDA-approved treatment or therapy.
