"Angels" suffer many many impairments. Inability to speak, sleeplessness, epilepsy, relationship difficulties, hyperactivity, constipation, sensory needs, wandering. All because they are missing a single gene that encodes one protein in the brain. But scientists are making great breakthroughs and are growing ever-closer to therapies that will help our Angels produce that missing protein.
Despite the countless obstacles they face every day, Angels can be the happiest and most joyful people you will ever meet. But they can also be an endless handful and without a significant breakthrough, they will require constant, lifelong care.
AS affects more than just Angels. It imposes a life-altering toll on their families. A lifetime without quality sleep, injuries from frustrated kids who cannot communicate, constant doctor and therapy appointments, and a never-ending cycle of grief. A cure will have immeasurable impacts for AS families.
