Our 'Angels'

John and Sophia

John and Sophia are two beautiful souls who live in Granville Ohio and share something very uncommon in life. They both have Angelman Syndrome, a rare genetic syndrome which affects around 1 in 15,000 people. Angleman Syndrome touches every aspect of their lives as well as their families lives. John and Sophia did not ask for this, but their families are committed to FIGHT for them, for a cure, and for improved therapies so they may live a healthy and meaningful life.

What is Angelman Syndrome?

Angelman Syndrome was first diagnosed by Dr. Harry Angelman in the 1960's. Through advancements in technology, scientists have found that Angelman syndrome is a single-gene disorder caused by a loss of function in the UBE3A gene on the maternal 15th chromosome. "Angels" suffer from the inability to speak, sleeplessness, seizures, epilepsy, relationship difficulties, hyperactivity, constipation, sensory needs, & wandering.Despite these challenges, Angels are some of the happiest, most joyful souls that you will be around. They have the ability to bring a smile to your face in spite of their daily challenges. That said, the stress and burden that families go through to care for their Angels can be exhausting. Angels require daily therapy, are prone to accidents, and require lifelong care.With your help we can help create a different future for these Angels!! The organizations we support are on the cusp of several approved therapies that could help countless families and Angels live more independent lives.
