Our mission is to fund research for treatment and cure for diseases caused by impaired PLA2G6 gene. We are parents of affected children, professionals, and supporters working together to cure diseases caused by this mutation.
Infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy is a disorder that primarily affects the nervous system Individuals with infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy typically do not have any symptoms at birth, but between the ages of about 6 and 18 months they begin to experience delays in acquiring new motor and intellectual skills, such as crawling or beginning to speak. Eventually they lose previously acquired skills (developmental regression). In some cases, signs and symptoms of infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy first appear later in childhood or during the teenage years and progress more slowly.
We cannot do this alone. Help us raise funds to support research to find a cure for INAD! As a new organization, with limited resources, we have a wide range of volunteer needs and opportunities. Please let us know if you are interested in hosting a fundraiser or if you would like to join our team as a volunteer!
